“Renewable Electricity Incentives in the OECD, China and India 2011/2012: Investment and Operating Support Programmes”
Renewable energy investment continued to grow throughout 2010, reaching $211 billion by year's end. This comprehensive report details the incentives and benefits available for renewable power development in 31 OECD countries, China and India. The study provides a clear country-to-country comparison of national incentive programs, emissions targets, and support for renewable electricity production.
Selecting the right market for project development and operation
There are two types of subsidies relevant to power generation: operating support incentives, which are offered per unit of electricity produced; and investment support, which is usually awarded in the form of direct aid, soft loans or tax exemptions. Although investment support incentives are often substantial, they offer less security to prospective investors as the availability of funding often depends on lodging an early application, and the amount offered may not be known until after project details are presented.
Country-by-country comparison shows best places to invest
As a conclusion, the report compares and ranks the operation compensation levels of the various nations through the analysis of two theoretical examples: a 499 kW building-attached commercial solar PV installation; and a 5.1 MW onshore wind power project. Europe has strong incentives and commitments in places to meet renewable targets, but lucrative incentive options also exist in other OECD nations around the globe, including Canada and China.
