ABSTRACT
This article analyzes the introduction of feed-in tariffs (FITs) in the renewable energy sector in 2011. It discusses the role of FITs in the transition from conventional sources of generating electricity to renewable energy sources such as solar, wind and geothermal. It explores the cases of Germany and Japan in adopting renewable energy sources. In addition, the article addresses the issue about the premium price paid for solar, biomass, wind and other renewable sources and the need for greater investment and deployment in the sector.
