The global energy crisis has not only disrupted demand and supply patterns but has made renewables investment decisions even more difficult.

       ·     How to support sustainable investments: Recommendations from the EU’s External Auditor,
MS KATHARINA BRYAN, EUROPEAN COURT OF AUDITORS

       ·     Q&A

Governments employ a variety of support policies to stimulate growth in use of renewable energy. These include feed-in-tariffs, tax incentives, tradable green certificates and direct financial support and investments in projects and research and development. Supreme Audit institutions as critical public auditors, evaluate how governments deal with energy issues, facilitating spending money effectively, efficiently and to do so in an accountable manner. Experts will present, through case studies focussed on audits conducting by EUROSAI members, results of analysis made on the effectiveness and productivity of government policies on renewables. The results of the audits conducted by EUROSAI member supreme audit institutions provide recommendations to governments on improving their performance in energy policy implementation. This experience could provide crucial information to policymakers, regulators and financers assembled at the Conference in order to improve the effectiveness and efficacy with which countries plan and implement investments in renewable energy.
