This conclusion presents some closing thoughts on the concepts covered in the preceding chapters of this book. The book analyses Russia’s renewable energy legislative framework, investment climate and the potential for renewable energy schemes in Russia. It argues that due to the ‘politicising of energy issues’, the uptake of low carbon energy sources in both countries has been relatively slow. The book presents the finding that Mexico lacks certain administrative rules, whereas Colombia’s legal regulatory framework is much more mature, enabling greater flexibility overall. It offers an analysis of Mexico’s Five-Year Government Plan and the extent to which Energy Counter-Reform impacts the current Energy Reform governance structure. The book addresses how a major fossil fuel exporter, Australia, is introducing significant quantities of renewable energy into its generation mix. It examines the current supply security challenge in Australia’s Eastern Gas Market, in terms of the current lack of gas availability and affordability for domestic consumers.
