Enabling policies to harness co-benefits of renewables worldwide

This COBENEFITS report gives an overview of enabling poli­cies that have high poten­tial to make fair use of the max­i­mum poten­tial of co-ben­e­fit oppor­tu­ni­ties that can be unlocked by fol­low­ing the path­way of a high share of renew­able ener­gies in the pow­er sec­tor. They are pre­sent­ed accord­ing to the dif­fer­ent COBENEFITS categories.

Enabling poli­cies for renew­able ener­gy (RE) coben­e­fits and their spec­i­fi­ca­tion and imple­men­ta­tion are high­ly con­text-spe­cif­ic. They need to take into account the con­text of the coun­try or region they are planned for, and need to be tai­lored to remove spe­cif­ic bar­ri­ers pre­vent­ing com­mu­ni­ties from unlock­ing them. There­fore, each enabling pol­i­cy option pre­sent­ed in this report is accom­pa­nied by a short sum­ma­ry of an ini­tial sit­u­a­tion that they might solve or improve..
