Abstract: Support for electricity generation from renewable energy sources is one of measures aimed at switch of European economies from fossil fuels to renewables. In the past a lot of attention was paid to the theoretical assessment of different support schemes, however, analysis of the empirical data on those schemes is somewhat lacking. This thesis analyses assessment of two types of support schemes in three countries on empirical data. The main contribution of this work is (i) expansion of previously used methodology that analyses relationship between investments into electricity generation from renewable energy and the net present value of such investments, and (ii) inclusion of the Czech Republic into the list of observed countries.
