There are several technologies covered under the Renewable Heat Incentive. These include biomass (such as wood pellets or wood chip), solar panels and ground source heat pumps.
The renewable heating methods covered under the RHI
For Non-Domestic Users are:
- Biomass heat generation and Combined Heat and Power (CHP)
- Ground source heat pumps
- Solar thermal heat and hot water
For Domestic Users are:
- Air or Ground Source Heat Pumps
- Solar Thermal Panels
The Government are keen to ensure that the renewable technology used must be of a suitable quality and energy efficiency. Only equipment that meets these criteria will qualify for the RHI financial support.
