RHI - Businesses

What is the Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI)?

The Non-Domestic RHI Scheme supports renewable heat installations in business, industry and the public sector as well as district heating schemes. It has been open for applications since November 2011.

 

What technologies are included in the scheme?

The Non-Domestic RHI Scheme currently supports the following technologies:

  • biomass
  • heat pumps - ground source, water source and deep geothermal
  • all solar thermal collectors
  • bio-methane and biogas

 

How are the payments calculated?

RHI payments are made every 3 months to the owner of the heat installation over a 20 year period. Tariff levels have been calculated to bridge the financial gap between the cost of conventional and renewable heat systems.  

 

Where can I find more information?

The RHI scheme is administered by Ofgem E-Serve and information on the scheme, including how to apply and eligibility can be found on the Ofgem E-Serve: Renewable Heat Incentive webpage. More information is also available on the Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC) webpages on the Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) Scheme and the Non-Domestic RHI Scheme.
