    1. Nuclear energy has an essential role in the French energy policy in spite of many condemnations of this kind of energy.
    2. Furthermore, renewable energies delay carving out a place in the energy policy not only because of the lack of support but also owing to the 'nuclear lobby?s' influence.

At the end of September 2004, the Russian government announced its ratification to the Kyoto protocol. This event gave the question of renewable energies a new breath. The goal of this work will be to compare the networks of decision in the three home countries of the members of the group, and to see if these eventual differences will result in very opposite policies regarding renewable energies. In this background, we shall begin with the presentation of several theoretical concepts on the field of the public policy analysis. Such a theoretical framework will be helpful to structure the following parts of the paper, and to have some basic concepts which we can refer to. After this, to enlighten our reflection, we will study the cases of our three countries: the United States of America, Belgium and France. In this part, we will analyze how the decisions concerning energy and more particularly renewable energies are taken in these nations. By doing so, we will be able to compare the types of governance presented and see if they result into various or opposite policies.
