April 2017 saw a number of policy changes in the global renewable power market.
In North America, in the US, the Oregon senate consented to a bill that includes woody biomass on the green energy technology list. San Francisco’s mayor set forth a 50% renewable energy target by 2020 and the city of Portland and Multnomah County committed to 100% from renewables by 2050. In addition, Oklahoma’s governor consented to an early end of wind tax legislation.
In Asia-Pacific, Indonesia increased its renewable energy share from 19.6% to 22.5% by 2025 and signed new rules for geothermal energy. Vietnam’s long-awaited solar power policy came into play.
In Europe, the Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) scheme (amendment) regulations (Northern Ireland) 2017 came into play. In Germany, the results of the first offshore wind power tender came out, and, in France, the winners of the 150 megawatt (MW) rooftop solar photovoltaic (PV) tender and small hydropower development were announced. The UK introduced the second Contracts for Difference (CfD) auction.
