The Renewable Heat Incentive is a fixed payment for the renewable heat you generate yourself. The Renewable Heat Incentive is similar to the Feed-in Tariffs, a comparable scheme for electricity which went live in April 2010.

The Feed-In Tariffs have done more than anything else to accelerate the installation of renewable energy capacity in Europe. That’s why the founders of Renewable Heat Incentive Limited were so active in the campaign to introduce them in the UK. It succeeded and in 2011 the first phase of the Renewable Heat Incentive will come into force.

RHI stands for the Renewable Heat Incentive

Offering fixed payments, currently to the non-domestic sector for renewable heat generated, RHI is a UK Government scheme designed to increase the number of renewable heat technologies.

RHI is expected to significantly contribute towards the Governments 2020 goal, which sees 12 per cent of heating being generated from renewable sources.

Domestic households are planned to become part of the scheme by Spring 2014. More information about RHI can be found here: http://www.ofgem.gov.uk/environmental-programmes/renewable-heat-incentive-rhi

Who is responsible for the scheme?

Ofgem is the body responsible for the scheme, on behalf of the Department of Energy and Climate Change

The 3 simple steps to receiving the RHI

  1. Install renewable heat systems in your home or office. Systems include solar thermal panels, biomass boilers and heat pumps.
  2. Measure the heat produced by your renewable system
  3. Receive your payment. The amount you receive is dependent upon the type of technology used, the size of the system and, of course, your output.
