This status report examines the support schemes in place across Europe. It found that fiscal incentives such as tax reductions or exemptions are often used to complement the main support scheme which are feed-in tariffs or (to a lesser extent) quotas with tradeable certificates. The report identifies barriers to the further deployment of renewables and assesses the extent to which renewables have been successful in replacing conventional generation in the fuel mix. It also finds that countries have adopted various support schemes for energy efficiency and concludes that the main barrier to energy efficiency is consumers' lack of information regarding potential cost savings from undertaking energy efficiency measures.
