Feed-in Tariffs for Energy Efficiency and Conservation (Energy Saving)

By Paul Gipe


While feed-in tariffs are most often associated with the generation and sale of electricity produced by generators using renewable sources of energy, they can also be used to pay for renewable heat and for energy efficiency and conservation.

Great Britain plans to offer renewable heat tariffs in April 2011. See Britain Proposes Feed-in Tariffs for Renewable Heat.

Even less explored than renewable heat tariffs, are tariffs that pay to save energy, that is, pay for energy efficiency and energy conservation measures. Here are a few articles on the topic.
