Moving towards a low carbon economy is one of the ongoing political priorities in many countries and energy policy thus faces important challenges concerning the deployment of renewable sources in a cost-effective way. This issue is relevant because the environmental and socio-economic benefits of renewable production have to be compared to their economic costs in order to determine the optimal energy mix that should be implemented. Past, present and future trends need to be explored by means of a methodology which combines economic theory with data analysis and simulation methods.
