Remediation and nature and landscape protection services are segments of the
environmental services sector. Remediation services entail the cleanup of soil and
water environments after contamination has occurred, while nature and landscape
protection services involve the prevention or mitigation of future soil and water
contamination as well as the protection of soil and water ecosystems. This report
provides an overview of U.S. and foreign markets for remediation and nature and
landscape protection services; examines trade and investment in remediation and
nature and landscape protection services markets, including barriers affecting such
trade and investment; and discusses existing regulatory practices. Information is

Renewable Energy Services: An Examination of U.S. and Foreign Markets Email
Written by Grant Ferrier  01 May 2009  

As requested by the United States Trade Representative (USTR), this report examines
global markets for renewable energy services as well as issues related to the international
trade of these services, for the purpose of providing information that would be useful in
conducting trade negotiations and environmental reviews. The report finds that demand
for renewable energy services is driven largely by government policies including those
that stem from national obligations under international environmental agreements. To
a lesser extent, demand for renewable energy services is also derived from technological
advances that have improved the cost-competitiveness of renewable energy technologies,
concerns regarding the environment and energy security, and other factors. While the
wind energy industry is the largest in terms of installed capacity among the five
renewable energy sectors (which are: wind, solar, biomass, geothermal, and ocean
energy) discussed in this report, the biomass energy industry is the largest in terms of
electricity generation. The United States is the world’s largest market for biomass and
geothermal power, while Germany, Japan, and France are the largest markets for wind
power, solar power, and ocean power, respectively. There are few barriers that
specifically target trade and investment in the renewable energy services sector, although
regulatory barriers that apply separately to related sectors, or horizontally to all industry
sectors, may affect trade and investment in the renewable energy industry.
