Abstract: The performance of policy mechanisms influencing the development of electricity from renewable biomass and biogas was evaluated in the EU-25 (Cyprus and Malta not included). By examining framework conditions i.e. success and risk factors for the progress, this analysis sought to identify a number of the key factors that affect the success (or failure) of support schemes promoting bioenergy. Within this work, five successful Member State/bioelectricity combinations were chosen for deeper analysis. In recognition of the fact that determination of the performance of policy instruments cannot be separated from the social, industrial and political environment in which these mechanisms are applied to, successful EU Member State/bioelectricity combinations were chosen instead of selecting specific policy instruments. The most successful combinations were found to be in Germany, the United Kingdom, Spain, Finland and Italy, whereas examples of 'unsuccessful' measures were found namely in Greece, Luxembourg and the new Member States.
