ITC Delays Report on Trade in Renewable Energy Services
The International Trade Commission has postponed from June 28 to Aug. 30 the date by which it expects to submit to the Office of the U.S. Trade Representative a report on trade and market trends in the renewable energy services sector. This report will:
- define types of renewable energy and related services, identify leading suppliers, and generally describe the relationship of renewable energy services to the development of renewable energy projects worldwide;
- estimate the size of the U.S. and global markets for certain renewable energy services, identify key export and import markets for such services, and describe factors affecting supply and demand;
- examine U.S. and global renewable energy services trade during 2007-2011 and highlight recent trends in investment in renewable energy projects and firms, including new business strategies or practices;
- identify barriers to U.S. trade and investment in renewable energy services and examine recent efforts to liberalize trade in leading markets for such services; and
- examine the role of clean energy incentive programs in encouraging investment in and creating markets for renewable energy goods and services.
