Key RHI facts:
(Updated May 14th 2013)
- The Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) is the world’s first long-term financial support programme for renewable heat.
- The RHI will be delivered in two phases; The Commercial RHI (Phase 1), and the Domestic RHI (Phase 2).
- The RHI pays participants of the scheme that generate and use renewable energy to heat their buildings. By increasing the generation of heat from renewable energy sources (instead of fossil fuels), the RHI helps the UK reduce greenhouse gas emissions and meet targets for reducing climate change.
- The Department of Energy & Climate Change (DECC) launched the RHI in November 2011 with a scheme for the commercial sector: Commercial RHI (Phase 1) (industry, businesses and public sector organisations).
- DECC will be launching a domestic scheme for individual households from March 2014: Domestic RHI (Phase 2).
- DECC intend to announce the tariff levels for the domestic RHI scheme in summer 2013.
- The Renewable Heat Premium Payment Scheme (RHPP) provides one-off payments to householders that purchase renewable heating technologies, and is currently open to householders until the end of March 2014, ahead of the launch of the domestic RHI.
- The Renewable Heat Premium Payment Scheme (RHPP) also assists Social Landlords, and now the RHPP Phase 2 Extension is even more attractive than before, offering up to £7900 per property for retrofit ground source heat pump installations.
