This paper aims to review public support for photovoltaic energy by focusing on the policies of three developed Asia-Pacific countries: Australia, Japan and Korea.

The efficiency of these different policies is assessed by comparing the public investment with the installed capacities.

The conclusion is that a well-planned policy limiting unwanted side effects should be preferred. Even if expensive in the short term, innovative technologies are beneficial in the longer term, and thus research and development subsidies should be maintained.
