This AURES-report gives an overview of relevant assessment criteria for policy makers, as a tool to measure the success of renewable energy auctions.

All assessments of RES-E support schemes implicitly or explicitly use several assessment criteria. Effectiveness and static efficiency are the most common, but several contributions expand the set of relevant criteria to include other aspects, such as the impact on innovation (dynamic efficiency), social acceptability, political feasibility and local environmental and socioeconomic impacts. Several criteria have been used in the literature to assess the functioning of RES-E support instruments.
