Summary

Ambitious targets to increase the she share of renewable energy (RES) technologies in energy production has awoken several level discussions on how and with what measures the targets will be reached. Nordic countries as well as other countries must readjust the used support mechanisms as well as the level of support to correspond the required increased targets. This reconsideration has given space for discussion on possible common Nordic support system – an idea that is supported by common electricity market and long co-operation in energy issues.
