The Possibilities of Electricity Produced from Renewable Energy Sources Support Schemes

Lina Sveklaitė, Andrius Stasiukynas


Feed in tariffs and tradable green certificates are the main support schemes, which are used for renewable energy development in the European Union. It is to be noted that both support schemes have limitations, which associate challenges not only in the policy making and implementing institutions, but also by increasing the burden for consumers. The success of support schemes depend on the chosen model. So, in order to avoid the disadvantages of both support schemes, it is necessary to consider another support model. The article aims at objectively assessing the key disadvantages of the main support schemes.
