Summary: This report presents the proceedings of a five-day workshop organized by the World Bank Asia Alternative Energy Program (ASTAE). The World Bank is providing technical assistance to the Government of China (GOC) to help develop recommendations for changes, where necessary, to China's present system of financial incentives for commercial renewable energy development. As part of the technical assistance, the World Bank held a workshop in February, 1997. This workshop brought together senior GOC officials, Bank staff, and senior government officials from six countries with experience in designing and implementing financial incentives for commercial renewable energy development. In addition to China, the six countries represented were Denmark, Germany, India, the Netherlands, the United Kingdom, and the United States. The workshop focused on experience with financial incentives with grid-connected wind power systems and off-grid photovoltaic systems. Incentives offered in each of the countries were summarized along with their results in terms of installed capacity, technology costs, and manufactured infrastructure. The collective experiences of the countries were further examined to indicate future directions for developing financial incentives for market-based renewable energy development.
