The Domestic & Non Domestic Renewable Heat Incentives (RHI) are government financial schemes to promote the use of renewable heat. Switching to heating systems that use naturally replenished energy can help the UK reduce its carbon emissions. Further information on both incentive schemes is presented below:
There are two RHI schemes, each with their own application process, joining requirements, tariffs and rules. This factsheet sets out the differences between the Domestic and Non-Domestic schemes for people who aren't sure which to apply to.
This factsheet sets out a basic overview of the Domestic RHI. It's designed for people who are considering or intending to apply for the scheme. It outlines the joining requirements, what you need to have and do to be able to apply, and the rules you have to stick to if you're approved to join.
The Non-Domestic Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) is a Government environmental programme that provides financial incentives to increase the uptake of renewable heat. For the non-domestic sector broadly speaking it provides a subsidy, payable for 20 years, to eligible, non-domestic renewable heat generators and producers of biomethane for injection based in Great Britain. Of course this is subject to the detailed scheme rules.
