This report discusses the Global Energy Transfer - Feed-in Tariffs (GET FiT) program, which has a primary goal of supporting renewable energy policies that reduce or mitigate investment risks, and consequently attract significant private capital to drive markets for commercially-available technologies. Feed-in tariffs, and similar performance-based incentives, have proven to be effective and effcient mechanisms for creating investor security and driving rapid renewable energy growth. The GET FiT concept could be adapted to specific national concepts and launched on a bilateral, regional, or global basis.
