Hide / Show Abstract

This chapter presets the main support policy instruments for renewable energy, concentrating on electricity production. Special emphasis is placed on tradable green certificates, fixed feed-in-tariffs as well as on premium feed-in-tariffs since they are considered to be the most potential choices for possible harmonisation in the Nordic Countries. The objective of the analysis is to identify and evaluate the characters that determine each instrument’s suitability for harmonisation.
