ABSTRACT
The article reports on the parliamentary pressure on the government of Great Britain to introduce a feed-in-tariff. Green groups, renewable energy interests and organizations want the measure to support heat, electricity and renewable gas. A cross-party amendment to the bill has been drawn up under the aegis of the Renewable Energy Association and Friends of the Earth. It calls for a guarantee of a long-term premium payment to homes, businesses and communities for any renewable electricity and heat they produce.
