ABSTRACT
The article reports on the launch of the feed-in tariff (FiT) subsidy, also known as the Clean Energy Cashback' scheme, for microgeneration technologies in Great Britain. Accordingly, Datamonitor Ltd.'s research shows that microgeneration technologies only have potential in very niche geographical locations without direct policy support. Moreover, the government claims that microgeneration technology has a part to play to help the country to reach 80% greenhouse gas emissions cuts target by 2050
