Renewable Energy Description:

In 2002, feed-in tariffs were set for the following renewable energy sources, completing the list of tariffs provided for in the Electricity Law, which came into force in 2001. The tariffs have been set for 15 years, except for solar PV which is for 20 years. All sites benefiting from the mandatory buyback rates must be under 12 MW of nominal capacity: - Biomass (Arreté of 16 April 2002): EUR 0.049/kWh, plus bonus for efficiency of between 0 and EUR 0.12/kWh. - Methanisation (Arreté of 16 April 2002): EUR 0.046/kWh, plus bonus for efficiency of between 0 and EUR 0.12/kWh. - Geothermal (Arreté of 13 March 2002): EUR 0.0762/kWh, with a bonus for efficiency between 0 and EUR 0.003/kWh. - Animal waste (Arreté of 13 March 2002): EUR 0.045 to EUR 0.05/kWh, with a bonus for efficiency between 0 and EUR 0.003/kWh. - Solar photovoltaics (Arreté of 13 March 2002): A tariff of EUR 0.305 per kWh has been set in the overseas departments (DOM), in the islands of Saint Pierre et Miquelon and Corsica and of EUR 0.152 per kWh for mainland France. New tariffs have subsequently been set for most of these technologies (see related entry).
