RHPP extension: The Renewable Heat Premium Payment (RHPP) scheme is being extended until the end of March 2014

RHI for householders: Following on from the consultation on scheme design in September last year, the Government will confirm how a RHI for householders will work and publish the tariff levels in Summer 2013. It is expected that the scheme will be up and running for householders in Spring 2014. Research on householder views on renewable heat has also been published today, which will help inform the design of the RHI scheme.

Update on renewable heat schemes

The Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) scheme, launched for industrial and commercial customers in November 2011, is a key part of the Government’s approach to cutting carbon and spurring on the uptake of renewable heating kit. As recently announced, DECC is planning to carry out a review of the tariffs under this scheme to drive forward further uptake and has today set out which technologies will be included in this review.

Energy and Climate Change Minister Greg Barker said:

“The Renewable Heat Incentive, which has been available for non-domestic investors for over a year, is a key part of our approach to cutting carbon and driving forward the move to more sustainable low carbon heating alternatives. “So far over 1,000 groups have got on board, and today we have outlined details of our tariff review to help encourage even more organizations to invest. “We remain committed to introducing an incentive scheme for householders too, and have today set out an updated timetable for its launch alongside plans to extend our renewable heat voucher scheme in the meantime.”

  • Non domestic RHI tariff review: DECC plans to consult on increased tariffs for some technologies where the evidence suggests a change needs to be made. The tariffs and technologies to be included in the review are available online.
  • Expanding the non-domestic RHI: DECC consulted on expanding the non-domestic RHI scheme to include further technologies in September 2012 and will confirm the way forward in Summer 2013.

The Government remains committed to introducing an RHI for householders, and has today set out an updated timetable for its launch alongside plans to extend the Renewable Heat Premium Payment (RHPP) in the meantime.

  • RHI for householders: Following on from the consultation on scheme design in September last year, the Government will confirm how a RHI for householders will work and publish the tariff levels in Summer 2013. It is expected that the scheme will be up and running for householders in Spring 2014. Research on householder views on renewable heat has also been published today, which will help inform the design of the RHI scheme.
  • RHPP extension: The Renewable Heat Premium Payment (RHPP) scheme is being extended until the end of March 2014, ahead of the launch of the RHI for householders. This scheme, first launched in July 2011, offers money off the cost of renewable heating kit such as biomass boilers, solar thermal panels and heat pumps and is largely targeted at those living off the gas grid. The scheme was due to close at the end of March this year.
