Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Subsidising via feed-in tariffs?

The French, Italian and German experience with take-or-pay contracts for gas (essentially a form of feed-in tariff, but with GazProm instead of the states) is that it gives cheaper and more secure supply than trading it on the spot market.

The Danish experience is that feed-in tariffs give cheaper electricity.
