Road transport accounts for around a quarter of final energy consumption, and renewable energy technologies and fuels can help countries meet their policy goals for secure, reliable and affordable energy and reduced price volatility. They can also promote social and economic development.

Renewable energy standards, regularly reviewed and updated by international committees of technical experts, can help policy makers as an instrument to demonstrate national regulatory compliance, as well as ensuring successful deployment of renewable energy technologies (RET).

This report, jointly written by IRENA and the Global Wind Energy Council (GWEC) provides an insight into the strengths of diverse policy design decisions in important existing markets.

This latest volume of IRENA Renewable Energy Country Profiles take stock of the latest developments in the field of renewables at country level for Asia and covers India.

Renewable energy (RE) in developing countries moves steadily, year after year, deeper into the mainstream investment agenda. In many cases, this trend has been supported by substantial progress in the design and innovation of RE finance policy by developing country governments.

This Handbook focuses on the role that Nationally Appropriate Mitigation Actions (NAMAs) can play in promoting Renewable Energy (RE) in developing countries.

This working paper shows that large-scale renewable energy electricity and biofuels for transport industries involve a large variety of jobs, which differ in skill levels required, and may also differ according to the supply chain of technologies.
