Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI)

Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI)

The Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) is a government support scheme to boost the uptake of renewable energy technology for generating heat. It offers different support mechanisms for the domestic and the non-domestic sector.

Domestic Sector support

The RHI gives ongoing tariff-based support. Domestic installations are those where a renewable heating installation serves a single private residential dwelling only.

Non-Domestic Sector support

Installations which are considered non-domestic in terms of the RHI - and this could be anything from a small bed & breakfast to a school to a large industrial plant - can receive RHI support in the form of tariff payments. As with the Feed-in Tariffs for renewable electricity, Renewable Heat Incentive tariffs are banded by technology and size.
