ABSTRACT
The article reports on the renewable energy policy of Germany, and compares it with the policy of the United States. The Renewable Energy Act of Germany requires that utilities pay some of the world's highest rates for electricity generated by photovoltaics. However, US energy policy makes the government subsidies for wind energy not based solely on the level of support that wind needs, but are linked directly to the owner's current tax expenditures. Germany implements the renewable energy policy with varied rates for each renewable energy source irrespective of retail rates, targets, and prices.
