The Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) was introduced to support households, businesses, public bodies and charities in transitioning from conventional forms of heating to renewable alternatives.
In March this year the Department for Business Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS, previously known as DECC) published ‘The Renewable Heat Incentive: A reformed and refocused scheme’, which outlined, and sought views on, the Government’s proposed reforms to the existing Domestic and Non-Domestic Renewable Heat Incentive schemes.
BEIS has now published a response to the consultation on reforms to the Renewable Heat Incentive. In summary these reforms will ensure:
• the scheme focuses on long-term decarbonisation
• the scheme offers better value for money and protects consumers
• the scheme supports supply chain growth and challenges the market to deliver
