Abstract

Today, there are concerns related to security of energy supply, growing energy demands, limitations of fossil fuels, and threats of disruptive climate changes. To overcome the challenges, diversification and utilization of renewable energy resources are defined as the main strategies. However, successful diffusion of renewable energy requires consideration to many factors including social, economic, and technical ones. Nordic countries are among the leading countries on successful development of renewable energy and energy efficiency. This research, in the frame of a strategic conceptual analysis, studies the policies and achievements of the Nordic region in their development of renewable energy. The framework consists of four layers including dimensions, characters, objectives, and key schemes.
