The DECC (Department of Energy and Climate Change) has held a consultation to increase the level of some of the tariffs in its Renewable Heat Incentive Scheme (RHI) to increase the use of heating technologies in the non-domestic sector. If the new proposals are to go ahead ground source heat pumps, large biomass and solar thermal technology will benefit from the increases in the worlds first feed-in-tariff for renewable heat. The news follows that of a delay for the domestic equivalent of the non-domestic RHI, which was met with dismay by those in the industry. The governments Renewable Heat Premium Payment Scheme, which offers discounts on renewable heating equipment, will be extended to fill the gap. At the moment around 1,300 renewable heat technologies have been installed and are generating revenue as part of the non-domestic RHI.
