RHI consultancy – generating money out of renewable source heat generation

It’s often the case, isn’t it, that we’re encouraged to sign up to new systems and processes with the promise of saving money – yet we soon find ourselves too busy or not sure enough of the detail to actually proceed and the opportunity is missed. Here’s one of those schemes that really is an […]

Renewable Heat Incentive for ground source heat pumps

Ground source heat pump systems are renewable heating and cooling solutions with a lifetime of 40+ years, low running costs, a large cost saving in displaced fuel and a financial incentive scheme to support it. The incentive scheme available is the Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) which was created by the Department of Energy & Climate […]

RHI tariff set to double for ground source heat pumps

The DECC (Department of Energy & Climate Change) is proposing to more than double the Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) tariff for large-scale ground heat-pump installations.  This could see the tariff rise from 8.9 to 10.2p/kWh of renewable heat produced. It will be applied to 1350 h of peak capacity and fall to 2.3p/kWh thereafter.  Hence, the […]

Renewable Heat Incentive accelerating demand for biomass

The future for biomass heating is looking increasingly bright due to considerable Heat Incentive payments and because it has a number of advantages over other renewables.  In particular it is not weather dependent like solar and wind and so to an extent is more predictable and much easier for heating engineers to calculate the likely […]
