Are feed-in tariff policies worth pursuing?

A review of wind feed-in tariffs finds plenty of opportunities for the improvement of such policies for renewables. Crucially, a FiT doesn't necessarily lead to higher renewables penetration.

Given that the effects of energy efficiency measures tend to be offset by a greater energy consumption that comes with economic growth, these measures, while important,  will not by themselves be sufficient to achieve major reductions in emissions – making the move toward cleaner energy a rising priority for climate change mitigation.

Countries around the world, including most of those in Europe and Central Asia, have used various incentive programs to accelerate the deployment of renewable energy. The most popular is the feed-in tariff.
