The Renewable Energy Policy Manual
This Manual identifies those issues that are the most relevant to countries that are seeking to attract private capital to their electricity sector, and in particular to the renewable energy sub-sector. In some cases, the relevance of an issue will depend upon the structure of a country's national electric system. In other cases, the issues and recommendations may have more universal application. Where the issues are specifically related to system structure, an attempt has been made to identify the structure that is being discussed and to indicate the applicability of the discussion to countries that incorporate that particular structure.
