(IS-2013-83) How an Electricity Efficiency Feed-in Tariff Can Cut Energy
This report from the Green Alliance in the United Kingdom explores how to reduce consumer demand for electricity and consequently how to reduce carbon dioxide emissions. The report suggests that paying consumers to reduce demand through a feed-in tariff is cheaper than building new plans. The goal is to achieve a 35% reduction in consumption by 2035. The challenges of demand reduction even with energy market reforms are discussed.
