The Renewable Heat Incentive

What is renewable heat?

Renewable heat means that a system uses a renewable source of energy to generate heat, rather than a fossil fuel – for example using an air source heat pump rather than oil or gas.

What is the Domestic Renewable

Heat Incentive for households and is it

available now?

The Domestic Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) is a long-term Government financial support scheme for homeowners, social and private landlords to install renewable heating systems in their homes in England, Wales and Scotland. This is a financial incentive scheme that launched in April 2014 and is open to anyone to apply for, but those who live off the gas grid are most likely to benefit. If you apply and comply with the scheme rules, you’ll receive quarterly payments for seven years. The size of your payment depends on the size of your property and the type of renewable heating system that you choose to install. The Domestic Renewable Heat Incentive will cover certain types of hot water and heating systems. These include heat pumps, biomass boilers and solar thermal systems. You can get more detailed information about eligible technologies from the Energy Saving Advice Service or just by calling or emailing us on the above number.

Does the Domestic Renewable Heat

Incentive work with the Green Deal?

The Green Deal is no longer required for the installation of renewable technology. Once you have an Energy performance certificate (EPC) then applying for the Domestic Renewable Heat Incentive is relatively straight forward.

What is the application process and what

do I need to do next?

Once your home has been assessed, should you wish to switch to renewable technologies, you will need to choose an installer to carry out your work.
