Feed-In Tariff 101
A few weeks ago, I wrote about how the implementation of a feed-in tariff has helped Germany become one of the world leaders in renewable energy. The video below, which I found on the website of the Institute For Local Self-Reliance, is a great addition to that post. Using simple animations, the creators of the video not only explain what a feed-in tariff is, they also describe why a feed-in tariff is an effective way of increasing the amount of renewable energy produced in a province, state or country.
Take a look.
(Note that in the video they use the term “Renewable Energy Payments” rather than feed-in tariff.)
