IEA Launches Database of Renewable Energy Policies

Have you ever wondered what sort of renewable energy policies are in place in other industrialized countries? Now you can find out easily, thanks to a new Web-based database compiled by the International Energy Agency (IEA). The agency's new "Renewable Energy Policies & Measures Database" contains 130 detailed entries on legislation designed to encourage the development and deployment of renewable energy technologies. Visitors can search for information according to country, policy type, and type of renewable energy. Search the IEA database.

Created in 1974, the IEA is an intergovernmental energy research and policy forum for 26 industrialized countries. See the IEA Web site.
