With the domestic Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) due to be launched this spring, the Department of Energy & Climate Change (DECC) is embarking on a nationwide roadshow of events to educate consumers and installers about the scheme. Part of that effort is exhibiting at Ecobuild, 4-6 March, ExCeL London.
Ecobuild is hosting a dedicated Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) zone where DECC will be showing the whole house offer available under the RHI & Green Deal. And with new tariffs and technologies expected for the non-domestic RHI, this zone will also cover the commercial opportunities on offer.
For the first time, with the non-domestic and the domestic RHI working in parallel, every building in Great Britain will be able to take advantage of the RHI.
Applying to renewable technologies such as solar thermal panels, heat pumps, and biomass boilers, the RHI is expected to make a significant contribution towards the government’s 2020 ambition of having 12% of heating coming from renewable sources.
To get ahead of the game and better understand how to benefit from the incentive, visitors to Ecobuild can speak directly to DECC representatives about all aspects of the schemes. Visitors to the RHI Zone will also have access to the latest information from DECC presentations.
Sessions in the wider Ecobuild programme will also explore the Renewable Heat Incentive, with DECC’s Head of RHI Household Support, Patrick Allcorn, on a panel discussing the incentives, paybacks and regulatory drivers effecting the renewables market.
Ashley Malster, Head of Continuous Improvement for the Domestic RHI, Ofgem, will take part in a panel on Thursday exploring how best to benefit from the domestic scheme.
