The following are notable observations from this 2013 edition of the Guide regarding the regulatory regime and available incentives for renewable energies in the 32 jurisdictions explored:
• Most of the countries, 21 out of 32, have an independent regulatory authority to supervise and regulate the electricity sector, including renewable energies, while the remaining 11 countries opt for regulation of the electricity sector by a Ministry.
• Most of the countries, 21 out of 32, provide for tax advantages for the generation of electricity from certain or all types of renewable energy sources.
• Purchase and/or minimum price guarantees (feed-in tariffs) or similar support mechanisms are available in most of the countries, 28 out of 32.
• In 19 out of the 32 countries, priority for connection to and/or usage of the transmission and/or distribution system is provided for renewable energy companies.
• 10 countries provide for additional incentives for the domestic manufacturing of equipment and materials.
