Service Overview

Syntegra’s Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) Consultancy Service helps businesses/developers obtain their RHI tariff payments, which for larger buildings/developments – can equal a significant amount per annum.

What is the RHI?

The Renewable Heat Incentive or RHI is a Government backed financial scheme designed to  to encourage homes, businesses and other organisations to use renewable heat sources to heat buildings and processes. If your scheme is eligible for the RHI, you will be paid for every kWh of heat you generate using a renewable technology over a period of 20 years. The government (via Ofgem) will pay owners of these systems for each kWh of heat generated according to a set of published tariffs. Systems must be heat metered, and compliant to set industry standards in order attain the RHI payments.

The RHI is available is two schemes:

Non-Domestic RHI – this includes industrial, commercial, not-for-profit organisations, communities and the public sector, as well as district heating schemes (where the heating system serves multiple homes).

Domestic RHI – this includes homeowners, private and social landlords (where the heating system serves a single household), and self-build homes.

Products supported under the scheme:

  • Air Source Heat pumps
  • Ground Source Heat pumps
  • Solar Thermal
  • Biomass boilers
