We are pleased to present to you DLA Piper’s first Asia-Pacific Renewable Energy and Climate Change Group Legal Update. This Legal Update provides a snapshot of the state of play of renewable energy in the Asia-Pacific, focussing specifically on trends in Japan, the Republic of Korea and the Philippines where there has been recent and remarkable progress. We discuss India and China as emerging superpowers turning to renewable energy to meet energy security issues. Further south, despite renewable energy investment in Australia steadily increasing over the past decade, it is clear we must raise our ‘Renewable Energy Country Attractiveness Indices” profile.

Despite its location outside the Asia Pacific, we also consider South Africa which has endured a power crisis of its own since 2007. There are lessons to be learned from DLA Piper’s experience with the South Africa Renewable Energy Independent Power Producers Procurement Programme which continues to grow despite inherent challenges.

Beyond the increase in government incentives in the Asia-Pacific region, there are signs that European developers are beginning to broaden their international focus to this market. Whether international developers will require further government incentives remains to be seen but it is clear that Asia Pacific countries continue to encourage accelerated growth in the renewables sector.
