European Tribune - Why Feedin Tariffs are the wrong subsidy.
These tarrifs have gotten quite considerable amounts of renewable capacity built, but because the tarrifs were set per technology, rather than simply being a fixed rate for any low-carbon generation, they amounted to politicians dictating technology choice. Badly.

So you would prefer a system that promotes expansion of technology that was picked decades ago and had its development funded by public expenses then?
