Feed-in tariff is a regulatory mechanism developed to encourage the development and growth of Renewable Energy by encouraging RE power generation technologies such as biomass energy, mini-hydro, wind, solar and ocean energy.
It is a fixed tariff calculated using the discounted cash flow internal rate of return (DCF IRR) which compares the equity portion (usually 30%) of the all-in project cost (land, equipment, project development, working capital, interest during construction) to the expected net cash flow.
It is usually a fixed tariff for a minimum period of 15 years that allows the RE developer to recover the cost of capital (equity and debt), allowable generation cost, and provide reasonable profit at the minimum equity returns needed by investors.
What are you waiting for. Email me now and be the among the lucky first 20 viewers to receive the demo copy.
