This year the British market appears to be one of the most favourable environments in the European overview, thanks to a series of regulatory measures aimed at incentivating the sector, in particular:
-Renewable heat incentive (RHI): a system of incentives which will be introduced in April 2011 and will have an impact on all renewable heating technologies. Among the eligible technologies there is no mention of solar panels. For further information visit: ww.rhincentive.co.uk
- Feed-in-tariff (FIT): a scheme to increase the level of renewable energies which draws upon the German version. It provides an amount paid for every KWhr produced from renewable sources, whether if consumed or fed into the grid in the form of electric energy.
