Renewable energy requires a plentiful supply of funding to meet global policy goals. Support schemes take a number of forms and all are subject to long-term fiscal constraints. Some asset classes will probably retain more support than others in times of fiscal constraint. US budgetary constraints are hampering renewable projects that rely on the federal production tax credit, particularly wind power. Strong growth in the renewable energy sector will require new investment sources, such as capital markets and pension funds plus more private equity.
