Advanced Renewable Energy Tariffs

On November 22nd, Ontario implemented its Renewable Energy Standard Offer Program, which sets a tariff for distributed generators feeding clean energy into the grid. The feed-in tariff is the first for renewable energy in North America since the early 80’s, when California designed one for wind developers.

Since then, however, countries in Europe have fine-tuned the tariff system, allowing them to advance beyond the U.S. in renewable energy capacity. Author and industry analyst Paul Gipe tells us about the Ontario program and why feed-in tariffs are so good for renewable energy markets. Also in the podcast: The slowly rising popularity of oceanic energy. Alla Weinstein, CEO of AquaEnergy and President of the European Ocean Energy Association, updates us on ocean renewables in America and Europe.
