This important volume gathers contributions from sixteen legal academics, practitioners, and business persons to clearly lay out, in great detail, both what is being done and what can be done in seven East Asian countries (plus a cluster of Eurasian countries including Turkey and ten former Soviet republics or Soviet bloc countries) to facilitate the deployment of renewable electricity technology. The original drafts of the articles were presented and discussed at the first International Joint Conference on Changing Energy Law and Policy in the Asia Region in October 2013 at the National Tsing Hua University, Taiwan.

Among the topics and issues raised for each country (as applicable) are the following:

  • renewable electricity-related policies and legal measures;
  • implementation and effects of existing renewable electricity-related schemes;
  • current situation of renewable electricity facilities;
  • legal and other barriers to renewable electricity development;
  • purchase prices, periods, surcharge adjustments, and other cost and pricing issues;
  • grid connection;
  • ;grid usage and expansion rules; and
  • relevant institutions and ministries.

An especially useful feature of the book is its evaluation of how each regime transforms one or more of the three key globally widely used market deployment schemes – feed-in tariff (FIT), tendering, and renewable portfolio standard (RPS) – to fit its particular situation. A wealth of highly informative graphs, charts, and tables greatly enhance the presentation.
