It aims to provide a better understanding of the policy instruments used to promote the deployment of renewable energy and energy efficiency technologies in developing countries. The course begins with an overview of the range of policy tools available, including price instruments (e.g., feed-in tariffs), quantity instruments (e.g., tradable renewable energy certificates) and standards (e.g., building codes for energy efficiency).
