Renewable Energy Technologies and their Growing Role in Energy Systems

The need to expand access to energy in order to drive global growth and job creation while simultaneously producing fewer GHG emissions is becoming increasingly recognized. Renewable energy technologies (RETs), which can be mixed with conventional energy sources, could provide countries with varied energy options within their national energy matrices to suit their specific needs and conditions. Given their enormous potential, there is growing interest in the current and future role of RETs in national energy supply systems worldwide. The nature of RETs and their current and possible future role are examined in this chapter, thereby establishing the basis for the discussions of policies relating to RETs in the subsequent chapters.
