I am trying to find out what Asian countries renewable energy policies/commitments are now and for the future and how governments are supporting this market. Especially for Biogas market.

Simon,
I have recently been researching some facts and figures for a UK client of mine wanting to know something similar for India and found a very useful site. Please take a look at The Energy and Resources Institute www.teriin.org

They have produced a summary document called "National Energy Map for India" - Technology Vision 2030. If you are unable to find it drop me an email to r.england@consultingforexport.net and I will email you a copy.

Regards,
Richard England

There are many sources for such information.
UKTI through OMIS do some very basic information. Local Chambers will also provide some information, the various "councils", these are joint funded initiatives between countries or economic regions, such as UKTBC (UK India Business Council) or UKABC (UK ASEAN Business Council) and all the others. The local governments and here in the UK their HCs and Embassies will also provide information. The EU does a lot of free reports, if you know who to talk to. These give a basic insight and are worth a look at.

Then private business who specialise in supporting business, like ourselves do a more comprehensive analysis. We do our own research using our local business partners and government contacts and use all the information from the above sources too, plus our local partners would use local specialists/experts, thus a much greater picture is possible. UKTI will match fund any research we do under EMRS.

What is also of importance are the local incentives. We are so confident in our local market contacts and support that bar something to show your commitment we will get you to contract stage within a few months in India for nothing. We have done for an Austrian Bio company and currently also assisting an Indian/pan European energy investment consortia.

Hope this helps
Jon
