Where do all the windmills go? Influence of the institutional setting on the spatial distribution of renewable energy installation

A. Pechan

Energy Economics, 2017, vol. 65, issue C, 75-86

Abstract: Promoting renewable energy sources is one policy response to climate change. Not only is there currently a debate over the best policy instrument, it is also discussed whether the renewable energy production should be expanded centralized at locations with the highest production potential or decentralized close to load. It is yet not fully understood what influences the spatial distribution of renewable energy installation.
