Post fossil fuel world underway
We have received an announcement of the launch of the website of the Global Renewable Energy Policies and Measures Data-Base.
This an initiative led by the OECD's International Energy Agency (IEA), and is being implemented in collaboration with the European Commission and the Johannesburg Renewable Energy Coalition. It features over 100 countries and offers renewable energy market and policy information in one format in one location for countries that together represent almost total global renewables supply.
The Database is freely accessible online via the IEA website. With an excellent intuitive web design, it allows visitors to search for (and find !) information according to country, policy instrument, renewable energy technology, renewable energy target and other criteria.
This online searchable database is part of a continued effort by the International Energy Agency to contribute to the international dialogue on renewable energy by providing unbiased information and analysis for the use by decision-makers, policy experts, researchers and industry, as well the broader public.
