Report on Third World policies and market mechanisms for renewables
1 March 2002
Policies and market mechanisms for wind and other renewable energies in 15 developing countries in Asia, Africa and Latin America are just as varied as in industrialised countries, concludes a study by Germany's overseas development organisation Deutsche Gesellschaft für Technische Zusammenarbeit (GTZ). Support mechanisms range from command and control subsidy programs through fiscal and customs duty stimuli to fixed feed-in tariffs for renewable energy. Electricity market liberalisation begun in many countries means that many companies can generate power for their own consumption or to supply third parties. This "could make a positive contribution to renewable energies," says the report. The study covers Argentina, Brazil, Chile, China, Colombia, Cuba, Dominican Republic, India, Jordan, Kazakhstan, Morocco, Mexico, South Africa, Tunisia and Turkey.
