Incentivising Renewables: A European Analysis

4 February 2011

New renewable generation capacity is increasing rapidly across the EU due to commitments to produce 20% of our energy requirements from renewable sources by 2020. Whilst many Member States are taking different approaches to incentivising the deployment of renewables, common themes and barriers can be seen. This guide, drawing on expertise from across our European offices, analyses those themes and barriers and provides a brief overview of the specific mechanisms employed in Belgium, the Czech Republic, France, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Poland, Romania, Slovakia1, Spain and the UK.

Please note that Clifford Chance does not have an office in Slovakia, although the relevant section was written by a Slovak-qualified lawyer from Clifford Chance’s office in the Czech Republic.
