Open Access research that is improving renewable energy technology...

Strathprints makes available scholarly Open Access content by researchers across the departments of Mechanical & Aerospace Engineering (MAE), Electronic & Electrical Engineering (EEE), and Naval Architecture, Ocean & Marine Engineering (NAOME), all of which are leading research into aspects of wind energy, the control of wind turbines and wind farms.

Researchers at EEE are examining the dynamic analysis of turbines, their modelling and simulation, control system design and their optimisation, along with resource assessment and condition monitoring issues. The Energy Systems Research Unit (ESRU) within MAE is producing research to achieve significant levels of energy efficiency using new and renewable energy systems. Meanwhile, researchers at NAOME are supporting the development of offshore wind, wave and tidal-current energy to assist in the provision of diverse energy sources and economic growth in the renewable energy sector.

Abstract

The aim of this report is to review recent changes in domestic regional policies across Europe, focusing on policy change over the 2011-12 period. The report has three main sections covering: an analysis of regional economic problems and trends in Europe over different timescales; a typology for understanding the different regional policy responses; and a review of recent changes to regional policies across 29 countries. The report is based on research in individual European countries and presente d in a series of country reports that have been provided separately (see EoRPA Paper 12/2). The paper is supported by a series of comparative tables that summarise the main regional policy instruments (see EoRPA Paper 12/3).
