A cleaner decade: Asia Pacific renewable energy reference manual

July 2010



Renewable energy has moved to the forefront of the political arena globally. Clean energy is now viewed as critical to the economic future of major economies.

President Obama has recently called for the USA to take the lead in the clean energy industry. In Australia we have seen a change in leadership which many commentators attribute directly to climate change and energy issues. The Australian government has left the door open for a change in the direction of its policies for the sector as it heads to the next election. Significantly for the Australian energy market, recent amendments to the Renewable Energy Target scheme are expected to create greater business certainty for investment in large-scale renewables projects.

Stability of the regulatory regime is a critical issue for investors in the sector. The global industry has become concerned with the threat of changes to support regimes which were previously viewed as stable, for example, the current debate in Spain on retroactive cuts to the solar feeding tariff regime. Asia Pacific countries must learn from other markets and put in place regulatory frameworks which stand the test of time , stimulate long term investment and foster local industries.
