Designing renewable energy incentives and auctions: lessons for ASEAN

This report documents and analyzes incentives for RE power currently being implemented in several ASEAN countries: namely, feed-in tariffs, self-consumption schemes, tax incentives, soft loans, and other incentives. The scope of the report also extends to auctions for renewable power, which is not an incentive per se, but rather a market-based mechanism for procuring renewable power that has increasingly been adopted by many countries in the last decade. This report examines the details of each incentive or mechanism, including its fundamentals, design elements, results, and impacts. It also explores issues related to effective implementation, and draws conclusions on best practices and lessons learned.
