Earlier this month, the 25x’25 Alliance released a progress report on where the nation is in terms of the goal of meeting 25 percent of our energy needs with renewable resources by 2025, and they held a press conference with representatives of all the major renewable energy sectors to talk about the report and what still needs to be done.
In this edition of the Domestic Fuel Cast, we will hear from each of those representatives – Tom Buis with ethanol group Growth Energy; Bob Cleaves of the Biomass Power Association; Brad Collins with the American Solar Energy Society; Karl Gawell from the Geothermal Energy Association; and Rob Gramlich with the American Wind Energy Association – as well as 25x’25 steering committee co-chairman Reid Smith.

I’m from the UK. The Government introduced Feed -in Tariff on 1st of April 2010. Under this scheme the UK energy suppliers make payments to householders who generate their own electricity from renewable sources such as PV panels and wind turbines. The generation tariff is a set rate paid: retro fit 41.3p (p/kwh) and new build 36.1p (p/kwh)by the energy supplier for each unit( or KWh) of electricity you generate. You will continue on this tariff for 25 years in the case of solar electricity. You can also receive a further 3p/KWH from your energy supplier for each unit you export back to the electricity grid.
