Polaris solar PV net news: United Kingdom Government announced further reductions in renewable energy subsidies, in the United Kingdom domestic caused quite a stir.
In fact, in April 2014, the European Commission has issued new rules phasing in solar, wind, biomass and other renewable energy industries of State subsidies, and beginning in 2017, all EU Member States are forced to restrict subsidies to the renewable energy industry. United Kingdom the initiative can also be seen as a response to new EU rules.
Subsidies for renewable energy industry, with certain public interest from the start color. In global climate variable warm, and fossil energy tension of big background Xia, how more has efficiency to using can renewable energy, is States pursuit of common target; and and of phase contradictions of is, this always is a development degree enough, and profit capacity not strong of Sunrise, thus various offers policy, and subsidies only will came into being, its initially purpose is attract more social funds into this a industry, encourages enterprise development related technology.
From a long-term perspective, blood transfusion is blood in order to make renewable energy industry with self-hematopoietic function, step by step to be able to sustain their own development, and stronger. Enterprise development that much, then consider a gradual reduction or even elimination of subsidies.
Perhaps some people may say, subsidies and other economic policies is not a long-term solution, is not conducive to creating a fair market environment. Germany world of renewable energy support model. Since 2000, since the implementation of the law on renewable energy, renewable sources increased from 6% in 2000 to 2013 25%. However, the heavily subsidized renewable energy lead to electricity price increases too fast. Germany government reforms of the renewable energy sources Act, cut the renewable support policy, control the size and subsidy growth trend, breaking the existing “excessive support” State. Considering the increasing financial burden of electricity consumers, the Czech Government has put an end to all new subsidies for renewable energy projects.
However, the undeniable is that as long as the renewable energy industry development without major leaps, expedient, for quite some time, I’m afraid, should also have its raison d ‘ être.
At present, many of the nation’s renewable energy industry is still in its infancy stage, without government subsidies, otherwise the operation will be very difficult. Developed countries such as the United States also need incentives, United Kingdom then came to reduce subsidies, companies continue to worry about, but there is a lot of struggling to survive in other countries clean energy businesses? Like the infant toddler parents one, may be about to fall.
Therefore, it can be seen, reducing or even eliminating subsidies is a trend, and ultimately the timing is the issue. In the context of the current global economic downturn, for some countries, renewable energy subsidies have become a heavy burden on the Government and taxpayers, reduce subsidies, probably just for this. However, renewable energy companies, like a bolt from the blue. When the Government decided to cancel the subsidies, you should consider whether it dealt a severe blow to many new construction, national emission reduction targets can be achieved, whether a subsidy exists also within the scope of the affordability of the people.
Thus, any introduction of a national policy to take into account various factors in a comprehensive, balanced the interests of all parties to make a prudent decision. According to all economic levels and stages of development, and constantly adjust and improve its renewable energy policy.
