A feed-in tariff (FIT, standard offer contract)[1] advanced renewable tariff[2] or renewable energy payments[3] is a policy mechanism designed to accelerate investment in renewable energy technologies.

Feed-in tariff - Wikipedia

It achieves this by offering long-term contracts to renewable energy producers, typically based on the cost of generation of each technology.[1][4] Rather than pay an equal amount for energy, however generated, technologies such as wind power, for instance, are awarded a lower per-kWh price, while technologies such as solar PV and tidal power are offered a higher price, reflecting costs that are higher at the moment. In addition, feed-in tariffs often include "tariff degression", a mechanism according to which the price (or tariff) ratchets down over time. Description[edit] Renewable Energy Database.
