Renewables: RISE Regulatory Environment
Which countries have an enabling environment for investment in renewable energy?
- RISE offers policy makers and investors detailed country-level insights on the policy and regulatory environment for sustainable energy across 111 countries globally.
- 77 percent of the 111 countries covered by RISE do not have carbon pricing and monitoring schemes in place or require mandatory reporting of greenhouse gas emissions. Where carbon pricing mechanisms are in place they almost always form part of the policy framework for renewable energy and climate action, as reflected in countries’ Nationally Determined Contributions.
