In an effort for greater certainty for investors in renewable heat and small scale electricity technologies and a fair deal for consumers, the UK Energy and Climate Change Minister Greg Barker clarified future arrangements for Feed-in Tariffs and the Renewable Heat Incentive. Feed-in Tariffs The final package of changes to the FITs scheme has been announced by the Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC) today, following consultation in February this year.

The changes will affect tariffs for all newly eligible FITs technologies from 1 December 2012 onwards. Changes to solar tariffs, which have already been announced, will take place from 1 August 2012.

Tariffs will be published two months before the degression date and will be based on publicly-available data. Decisions on the degression mechanism for solar were outlined in the Government response published on 24 May 2012.
