How will the RHI scheme be managed?

The Renewable Heat Incentive is a Government funded scheme which promises to pump millions of pounds into encouraging Non-Domestic and Domestic energy users to switch into renewable energy.

Although it is funded by the Government the RHI scheme is managed by the energy regulator Ofgem. They are in charge of administrating the scheme and monitoring eligible systems and the tariffs paid.

Ofgem has published guidelines on both the application process and the ongoing requirements of the RHI scheme. As part of their management of the scheme Ofgem is also responsible for all compliance issues. If participants in the scheme fail their compliance procedures than Ofgem are able to suspend or withdraw payments, reduce payments, exclude participants and even prosecute for fraud.
