REPP has investigated the relationship among policy,
markets and public demand in accelerating the deployment
of renewable energy, which include biomass, hydropower,
geothermal, photovoltaic, solar thermal, wind and renewable
hydrogen. REPP will be working over the next year to
design a program to encourage the development of a domestic
manufacturing industry to support increased installations
