RHI Scheme

What is the RHI Scheme?

By RHI Scheme

On 10 March 2011, the Government announced the details of the Renewable Heat Incentive policy to revolutionise the way heat is generated and used. This is the first financial support scheme for renewable heat of its kind in the world.

At a time when we can see many problems with relying on a rapidly changing world and continuous reliance on oil and gas, we are proposing to put in place a key foundation stone of our energy future where both carbon reduction and energy security are assured.

Financial Support

The Renewable Heat Incentive(RHI) policy document, sets out the detailed arrangements for this scheme, which will provide long-term financial support to renewable heat installations to encourage the uptake of renewable heat.

RHI scheme payments on renewable heat are based on heat metering however there are strict guidelines on the type of metering equipment utilised with the minimum approval requirement of MID class 2 (MI-004); the RAY Heat Meter & SHARKY Heat Meter comply.
