Support for domestic biomass heating installations
Domestic wood biomass heating systems are supported through tariff payments as part of the domestic phase of the RHI.

Support for non-domestic biomass installations
Non-domestic biomass heating systems, anything from a small pellet boiler for a B&B or shop over a wood chip heating system for a school to a massive industrial biomass heat & power station, receive an RHI tariff payment for every unit of heat generated.
For information on RHI support for non-domestic installations, please see our page How will the Renewable Heat Incentive support non-domestic installations?
Eligibility for support
To be eligible, both the equipment and the installer for domestic and small (<45kW) non-domestic biomass systems will have to be accredited under the Microgeneration Certification Scheme (MCS), and the boiler needs to be on Ofgem's list of products. See our page on finding installers.
