Abstract

Using RPSs and FITs as proxies, this article makes the case for closer integration of quantity- and price-based policies for better allocation of investor and regulatory risk. With aggregate risk mitigation greater than the subtotal of its parts, a joint RPS-FIT regime requires lower returns to leverage private-sector investment in renewables while ensuring sustainable growth in clean energy deployment.
