Increasing renewable heat is key to the UK meeting its renewable energy targets, reducing carbon emissions, ensuring energy security and helping to build a low carbon economy. The Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) will help accelerate deployment by providing a financial incentive to install renewable heating in place of fossil fuels.
On 1 February 2010, the Government published a consultation on the introduction of a Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) scheme. This publication ‘Consultation on the proposed RHI financial support scheme’ and supporting documents can be accessed via the National Archives.
The policy document ‘Renewable Heat Incentive’ and the other supporting documents on this page were published on 10 March 2011 in response to this consultation.
