Find out how renewable heating could help you have a warmer home

The Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) team will be attending a series of roadshows to explain how renewable heat could be the smarter way to heat your home.

This was published under the 2010 to 2015 Conservative and Liberal Democrat coalition government


The domestic RHI was launched in April 2014 and is the first scheme of its kind in the world, aimed at helping people install renewable heating systems, so they have warmer homes and lower fuel bills while reducing their emissions.

This innovative scheme pays people for the heat they generate for their homes. It is open to everyone - home owners, social and private landlords, and people who build their own homes. It is available to households both on and off the gas grid.

You can find out more about the scheme and try our RHI calculator to understand more about what you could receive if you installed a renewable heating system in your home.

Members of the RHI team will be out and about this spring to help people understand the benefits of the domestic RHI. We want to get the message out that renewable heat can be the smart way to take control of energy bills and have a warmer home.

Come and join us at one of our regional roadshows taking place across the country. Meet our team and find out more about the RHI at one of the following events:
