In a truly groundbreaking move for the English-speaking world, Britain’s Department of Energy & Climate Change (DECC) has released a full suite of renewable energy tariffs that go into effect in April.

Britain will become the first country in the world to offer a comprehensive system of tariffs for renewable heat, including tariffs for solar domestic hot water and ground-source heat pumps among others.

In another first, Britain will also offer a tariff for biogas injected into natural gas pipelines.

And Britain will fully index the tariffs with inflation. This often overlooked aspect of the British program will significantly boost earnings by protecting investors from the ravages of inflation.
