This consultation outlines and seeks views on the Government’s proposed reforms to the existing Domestic and Non-Domestic Renewable Heat Incentive schemes.
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 November 2015, the Government renewed its commitment to the transition to a low carbon economy by confirming a continued budget for the RHI. Alongside this, the Government also wishes to reform the scheme to ensure it meets its objectives in a manner which: is affordable; offers value for money; promotes deployment of those technologies which are likely to be strategically important in the long-term; contributes to the development of sustainable markets; promotes widespread access, and; incorporates robust scheme design. The consultation sets out and seeks views on the Government’s package of proposals to achieve these aims.
