Feed-in tariffs in the European Union - Renewable energy policy, the internal electricity market and economic expertise

Abstract : This book retraces the history of feed-in tariffs in relations with the European Union renewable energy policy from a sociological perspective. Feed-in tariffs are one of the most widespread instruments for promotion renewable electricity. By following their trajectory since their emergence in the late 1970s, the book explores evolving conceptions of renewable energy policy in the European Union at the intersection between environmental objectives, technological change and the ambition to liberalise the internal electricity market. The book is structured according to a chronology punctuated by key EU directives relevant to renewable energy policy. From this account, conclusions are drawn on the relationships between markets and policy-making as it is instituted in the European Union, as well as on the interplay between the implementation of a European vision on energy and national politics.
