READy: Renewable Energy Action on Deployment

policies for accelerated deployment of renewable energy

Are you developing strategies for a future sustainable energy supply? Are you designing policies to deploy renewable energy technologies in your country? Are you looking for new tools and measures to make your policies more effective? Are you planning to make decisions on renewable energy investments in certain countries and are you checking their policy robustness?

Let the IEA guide you into successful, efficient and effective policies and decisions for accelerating deployment of renewable energy. Learn about the six policy actions that are essential ingredients for your policy portfolio:

  • Alliance Building
  • Communicating
  • Target Setting
  • Integration in economic policies
  • Optimizing  existing instruments and
  • Neutralizing disadvantages on the playing field

This book shows why and how successful renewable energy strategies work. Many recent and actual examples of best cases and experiences in policies--based on literature and interviews--show how policies can best mobilize national and international renewable energy business and the financial institutions, while creating broad support. The book is an initiative of the IEA-RETD, an international agreement between nine countries to investigate and accelerate the deployment of renewable energy deployment.

Government and business leaders, NGOs, researchers and financers in the Energy sector, particularly those involved in renewables deployment
