Subsidies Programs

 

Subsidy Programs

 

Important!

When deciding to invest in a renewable energy technology that can receive subsidy funding from a government subsidy program, it is important to check the following:

  • Under what conditions is the subsidy offered
  • If a third party is involved with the installation, does this third party have the required accreditations? This needs to be double checked as some installers will claim to have the accreditations even when they do not. If an installer falsely claims to have the required accreditations, you will not be eligible for reimbursement from a subsidy program based on their work.
  • Information about accreditation can be found at your government’s official renewable energy web site

Below is an international list of governmental and other web sites that provide information on renewable energy subsidy programs, including feed-in tariffs and tax rebates. This list was mainly created from information found on the International Energy Agency’s database (see first link below).
