Taxes and incentives for renewable energy
While this report is principally designed to help companies and investors stay current with government policies and programs that support renewable energy, it does provide a useful summary of tax and nontax incentives in use in 31 countries, which may be helpful for developing country policymakers who wish to see which incentive measures are being used in other countries, as a starting point for comparative analysis. The table on p. 10 summarizes the different instruments used in these countries, and the following country pages provide brief information about the specific incentives.
