Abstract

The comparative analysis shows that both the EU and the USA have a wide range of energy policies that allow flexibility in how targets are met. While the USA has renewable electric power and biofuel targets, EU has targets for renewable energy including heating and electric power and biofuel. The USA uses policy instruments to promote mainly electricity and biofuel. Contrary to policies in the USA, biomass energy policies in the EU emphasize all types of renewable energy output including heating.
