RHI tariff reductions

RHI Tariff Reductions

The Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) is a Government environmental programme that provides financial incentives to increase the uptake of renewable heat. There are schemes for domestic and non-domestic sectors. Ofgem is responsible for implementing and administering the scheme on behalf of the Department of Energy and Climate Change.

The latest quarter review shows that three RHI schemes will have tariff reductions, which come into effect on 1 October 2015.

  • The small non-domestic biomass tariff will be reduced by 5%.
  • Biomethane tariffs in the non-domestic scheme will be reduced by 10%.
  • The domestic biomass tariff will be reduced by 10%.

All other technologies remain well below their triggers and their tariff remains unchanged.
