We believe that Windhager are the world’s leading manufacturer of biomass technology and we are thrilled to have developed this close working partnership with such a world class international biomass manufacturing company.
Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) Scheme
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 introduction of the Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) scheme by the UK Government is intended to increase significantly the proportion of heat that is generated from renewable sources. By encouraging a switch from fossil fuels, this will contribute towards the UK’s wider carbon reduction goals. The RHI is intended to compensate for the higher cost of renewal heating technologies, which will help make renewable heating an option for all. Click here for full RHI publication.
In order to be eligible to claim the RHI, equipment must be:
- A new installation;
- First commissioned on or after the 15 July 2009;
- Generating heat for an eligible use (see below); and
- Metered output
Eligible uses of heat
The RHI will only support ‘useful’ heat. This is defined as follows:
- Heat supplied to meet a justifiable heating requirement;
- Load should be an existing or new heating requirement i.e. not created artificially, purely to claim the RHI; and
- Acceptable uses are space, water and process heating
Beaumont Water Heaters will assist you to design install and service your RHI qualifying installation.
