Title: Feed-in-Tariffs Explained


1
Feed-in-Tariffs Explained
  • What is it all about?

23rd February 2011 Edward Leddy-Owen Regional
Microgeneration Coordinator Energy Saving Trust
advice centre West Midlands
2
Background to FiTs
  • Helping to delivering national CO2 reduction
    targets of 80 by 2050 set out by EU/UN treaties
  • Potentially play a vital role in the Household
    Energy Management strategy (HEM) set out by DECC,
    to reduce CO2 29 by 2020
  • It is extimated that the scheme should encourage
    750,000 installs by 2020.
  • FiTs are tied into the national Renewable Energy
    Strategy set out by DECC.

3
How it is Managed
  • Managed by the energy supplier
  • Monitored and quality controlled by Ofgem on
    behalf of DECC
  • Responsibility of the homeowner to register to
    the supplier
  • Responsibility of the MCS installer to ensure
    quality reporting to Gemserv

4
Introduction to Feed In Tariffs
  • Consumer name is Feed in Tariff (used to be
    Clean Energy Cashback)
  • Introduced on 1st April 2010,
  • Will provide financial incentives for people
    and businesses to install electricity-generating
    technologies such as solar electricity panels and
    wind turbines.

5
Technologies available
  • The scheme will support the following up to the
    5MW limit

MicroCHP
Microhydro
Microwind
Solar PV
6
Worked example
Total electricity demand of house 4000kwhr/year
Total generation (1,600kWh) Income 666
Onsite use (800kWhr) 103 saved
2kWp solar PV Generating unit
Export (800kWh) Income 24
Remember they still have to import 3200kWhr
Total saving 793/year
7
The Tariff on Paper
  • A load of numbers?
  • What is in it for the customer?
  • How can it be used to maximum effect?
  • Is it better than a grant?

8
How to Get on Board
9
Who Can Benefit from FiTs
  • The FiT range is between 1kW to 5MW
  • A single macro wind turbine is 2.5 3MW
  • As long as the technologies are within the
    generation range
  • Microgeneration Certification Scheme (MCS)
    Certified for micro (less than 50kW)
  • ROO-FIT if over 50kW (macro system)
  • ANYONE who meets the above criteria

10
How Can They Benefit?
  • Simple saving and income for a private
    household
  • Interest free loan scheme for a local authority
  • Community cooperative investment project for a
    large microgen system such as hydro
  • Development options for large construction
    firms
  • Large building owners can rent roof space
    etc

11
Efficient Use is King
  • Use your energy whilst being generated
  • Have an energy efficient home
  • Savings will have a big impact on what you
    generate
  • The export tariff is the cherry on top
