In March 2011 Renewable Energy Independent Power Producer Programme (REIPPP), a public procurement programme, replaced the Feed-in Tariff system, which was introduced in 2009.
Qualifying technologies: onshore wind, solar PV, solar thermal, biomass solid, biogas, landfill gas and small hydro plants.
A ceiling tariff level is established for each technology in the auctions. Winning bidders sign PPAs, which are guaranteed for a period of 20 years.
From 2011 to the beginning of 2015 five rounds of reverse auctions were held for construction and supply of 3,625MW of large-scale (>5MW) renewable energy capacity.
|This record supersedes:||Renewable Energy Feed-in Tariff (REFIT)|
