Thereport presents an in-depth analysis of the renewable energy policies across the majorcountries in North and South America namely the US, Canada, Mexico, Brazil andArgentina. It details the key policy instruments adopted by the US Federal and Stategovernments that led to huge development in the renewable industry. The report alsoprovides insights to major policy initiatives taken up by the US Administration for themarket development of renewable energy sources such as wind, solar, geothermal,biopower and biofuels. For Canada, in addition to the federal policies, the report details thepolicies of the provinces that are leading the renewable energy industry in the country. Forother major countries, it provides the current and future renewable energy targets andplans along with the present policy framework, giving a fair idea of overall growthpotential of their renewable energy industry. The report also provides major technologyspecific policies and incentives provided in each of these countries. The report is builtusing data and information sourced from industry associations, government websites andstatutory bodies. The information is also sourced through other secondary researchsources such as industry and trade magazines.Scope The report covers policy measures and incentives used by the major countries in North and South America to promote renewable energy. The report details promotional measures in different countries both for the overall renewable energy industry and for specific renewable energy technologies namely solar, wind, geothermal, hydro and bioenergy. The report also highlights the differences and focus of the renewable energy policy frameworks in different countries in North and South America. The report provides a platform for comparison of various renewable energy policies across countries.Reasons to Buy The report will enhance your decision making capability in a more rapid and time sensitive manner.
