Because energypedia is a free wiki platform for collaborative knowledge exchange on renewable energy and energy access issues in the context of development cooperation. Because on energypedia, any registered user can easily create, modify and share content. Because every month over 65, people check out pages on energypedia. Learn more Many countries across the world have built up a policy framework which is aimed at supporting the development of renewable energy technologies, including PV and picoPV products.

Fiscal incentives, such as tax exemptions, are an effective way of supporting these technologies. This article summarises the legal texts and regulations in some of these countries as well as links to the original government legislation documents, whenever possible. Countries are sorted alphabetically within each continent section.

Currently, most of the information gathered in this article is on policies within Latin American countries, with only a small section on policies in a few African countries. The information found in this article might be useful for countries who are thinking about implementing similar policies and are interested in learning how other countries have formulated their legal texts aimed at fostering PV products.

This might make it easier for countries who currently have no such legislation in place to adopt new policies and thereby have a positive effect on the distribution of PV production world-wide.

However, this report does not include any quotations of actual policies and legislation and therefore does not show the wordings used by different countries. But you can find an overview organized by policy type rather than by country. Providing Energy Access Through Off-Grid Solar: Guidance for Governments offers advice to governments in designing effective policies and regulations that will enable the off-grid solar sector to have a far bigger role as part of integrated national electrification strategies.

The guide outlines the core elements of supportive policy frameworks that have been shown to work in accelerating electricity access in key markets. It also provides best practice examples and resource references, with input from companies, development finance players and other stakeholders operating in Africa, South Asia, and other key regions, that governments can learn from.

The climate scope policies database list renewable energy policies put in place by 54 different countries. As such the database provides a great overview of policies and the tax exemption policies can easily be found for each county.

For each policy, there is a short description, including information about when the policy was put in place, what it is about, which law or decree it is written in as well as listing the renewable energy sectors which are affected by it. In most cases, a link to the original government legislation document is provided.

Installation of higher capacity is also possible but with prior authorization. Main Page Home. About energypedia Introduction Donate Community Consulting.
