This information paper complements the International Energy Agency's 2011 report, "Deploying Renewables 2011: Best and Future Policy Practice" (http://www.iea.org/w/bookshop/add.aspx?id=414), and is intended to provide more detailed information on renewable energy markets, policies, and deployment. The paper provides information about current levels of renewable energy deployment worldwide. Additionally, it divides up the world into six regional groups for the analysis of renewable energy deployment policies and projections of 2030 mid-term renewable energy potential. The regional groups encompass the OECD-30, a portion of Sub-Saharan Africa, the Middle East, Southeast Asia, large developing economies, and part of Latin America.
