A new report claims the Welsh government should establish a renewable energy delivery board to coordinate developments by energy suppliers.
The National Assembly for Wales Committee claims introducing such a board would help to remove the current backlog of onshore wind farm applications.
In the report, the committee recommends the government should outline its case for the devolution of energy consenting and financial incentive powers.
Meanwhile, it should ensure the motivation process for marine, wave and tidal projects in Wales is on a par with Scotland.
Chair of the National Assembly for Wales's Environment and Sustainability Committee Lord Elis-Thomas said: "The energy sector in Wales has an important contribution to make in meeting European Union targets for renewable energy generation, helping to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and boosting the economy."
The committee was formed in June 2011 as a remit to examine legislation and hold the Welsh government to account by scrutinising expenditure, administration and policy matters encompassing the maintenance and development of the country's green energy.
