It is the news we have been waiting for, Domestic RHI has officially launched. The Domestic Renewable Incentive is a government financial incentive to promote the use of renewable heat and promoted the idea of switching to heating systems that use naturally replenished energy to help the UK reduce its carbon emissions.

The domestic RHI scheme is open to owner occupiers, private landlords, Registered Providers of Social Housing and self-builders who have installed an eligible technology since 15th July 2009, provided they meet the scheme criteria.

Successful applicants will receive quarterly payments for seven years. Any public grants previously received, including the Renewable Heat Premium Payment (RHPP), will be deducted to avoid a double subsidy.

The Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) is a Government funded scheme to encourage the take up of renewable technologies; it is the first of its kind in the world.

The scheme is guaranteed for 20 years for non-domestic applications and seven years for domestic applications, and is index linked to inflation. The UK Government expects the RHI to make a significant contribution towards their 2020 ambition of having 12 per cent of heating coming from renewable sources.

This was started by the introduction of the Climate Change Act of 2008 establishing legally binding reductions to the UK’s greenhouse gas emissions. The next significant milestone is to reduce emissions to 25% below the 1990 level by 2017. There are two phases to the introduction of the RHI:

Phase 1: the introduction of the RHI for non-domestic installations in the industrial, business and public sectors.

Phase 2: the domestic element of the RHI, launched in April 2014 for owner occupiers, private landlords, registered providers of social housing and self-builders.
