Overview

Effective policy is vital for creating greener economies, new jobs and industries, for securing energy supplies and for protecting the climate and environment. As renewable energy is fundamental to achieving all of these objectives, it also needs the best possible policy to drive it. Feed-in tariffs have proven to deliver the fastest, most cost-effective and inclusive deployment, by allowing anyone to sell renewable energy into the grid and get a long-term, guaranteed return for it. This book, from authors who have spent years working on feed-in tariff design and advocacy, provides a broad yet detailed resource on the subject.
