This second edition's core objective is to provide a complete overview on the
relevance of Renewable Energy in all EU
member states and the developments in
these countries over time. To give an
even broader perspective, contributions
on some non-EU countries like USA,
Switzerland and China are also included.
Not only development plans and
requirements by the state and other
authorities, but also support mechanisms,
grid access rules and codes,
authentication methods, cross-border
trading and guarantees of origin, supervision
of the renewable energy sector,
overview of planning, construction and
operation and use of specific structural
and cohesion funds for renewable
energy project development are all
included in this new volume.
Each country has its own chapter in which all these topics are discussed, and is written by a team of leading experts from all member states. Even a chapter about Croatia (member of the EU as from 01.07.2013) is included.
This information on the 28 countries was never before available in one volume!
