AltaTerra Research Web Conference Presents Status Update and Outlook for Renewable Energy Feed-in Tariffs in North American and Worldwide

Once “unthinkable” in North America, renewable energy feed-in tariffs are gaining momentum in the U.S. and elsewhere. On March 4th, author, advocate, and renewable energy industry analyst, Paul Gipe will present the latest developments in the feed-in tariff debate.

Palo Alto, CA, February 10, 2010 --( AltaTerra Research is pleased to announce the web conference, “Renewable Energy Feed-in Tariffs: North American and Worldwide Status Update and Outlook” to be held Thursday, March 4th at 11:00 am Pacific / 2:00 pm Eastern. The featured presenter will be Paul Gipe, author, advocate, and renewable energy industry analyst.

Despite their success elsewhere, feed-in tariffs (FITs) were “unthinkable” in North America as recently as six years ago. Since 2007, however, more than a dozen U.S. states have introduced feed-in tariff legislation and other states have initiated or announced plans for feed-in tariff regulatory proceedings. And, feed-in tariffs continue to gain momentum throughout North America and in developing countries, such as China, India and Mongolia.

“Feed-in tariffs are the single-most successful policy for the rapid development of renewable energy,” said Paul Gipe. “It's only a matter of time before they are widely used in the United States and Canada.”

This web conference will walk through the latest developments in the rapidly evolving continental feed-in tariff debate and outline challenges and opportunities for the renewable energy industry.

Key topics to be addressed include: The economic case for feed-in tariffs, how they work and what they can contribute to improve energy security, create new jobs, and address the growing risks of climate change; the timeframe for adding renewables; worldwide wind and solar capacity and markets; feed-in tariff myths and misconceptions; feed-in tariffs by state, province and country; feed-in tariff design and keys to success; policy descriptions, implications and evaluation; pricing and yields; program costs and outcomes; and remaining issues and challenges.
