This compilation of seven papers was produced in 2013 in the context of the “E15 Expert Group on Clean Energy Technologies and the Trade System”, convened by ICTSD, the Friedrich Ebert Stiftung (FES) and Chatham House. The background paper highlights a number of issues important for how the multilateral trading system could play a more supportive role to facilitate greater deployment of clean energy goods and services. The following think pieces assess the effectiveness of renewable energy measures and the implications of the Canada – Renewable Energy/FIT disputes, propose concrete options for addressing the need for policy space under the WTO SCM Agreement with respect to clean energy, discuss the costs and benefits of options for adjusting WTO rules to provide additional policy space under the GATT 1994 and the SCM Agreement for measures to mitigate climate change and promote renewable energy, analyse disputes and trade-remedy measures in the context of the trade and clean energy interface, and finally explore options to pursue market access and policy reforms for clean energy services.
