Government Response to the Biomethane injection to grid tariff review.
In May 2014, we published a formal consultation setting out our proposals to review the biomethane injection to grid tariff under the Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI). Since then DECC has engaged extensively with stakeholders on our proposals and received over 60 responses to the consultation. This is the formal Government response to our consultation which sets out how we will revise the biomethane injection to grid tariff.
This consultation on the RHI biomethane injection to grid tariff seeks views from industry on the proposed adjustment to the biomethane to grid tariff. The consultation presents two tariff options: banding and tiering. For each option, scenarios are presented that illustrate how tariffs for different sizes of biomethane plant might be derived. We would like input from industry on the form and levels of support offered by these proposed illustrative tariffs, and the evidence that underpins them, to ensure that the RHI continues to support sustainable growth in the biomethane to grid market.
We plan to lay the amended regulations as soon as possible after Parliament returns from recess in Autumn 2014.
