Non-Domestic Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) Updates (December 2016)
In December 2016 the Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy (BEIS) published a response to the RHI consultation. This consultation came about with a view to refocus the way the RHI works, following the Government’s commitment to extend the budget of the RHI to 2020/21.
Subject to parliamentary approval, the following key updates to the non-domestic RHI scheme are expected to come into action in April 2017.
- Increase to biogas and biomethane tariffs. Biogas and biomethane applicants that register between now and the date the regulations come into action are potentially eligible to receive these tariffs, subject to compliance with new feedstock and digestate rules.
- Tariff guarantees for pre-accreditation. Aimed at projects with long lead times and high capital expenditure, this means that larger projects will be able to have access to tariffs available earlier in a project lifecycle.
- Revision of the tariff degression mechanism to align the triggers for degression to growth. Refinement to the distribution of the RHI budget, applying budget caps by technology type.
- New participants who are producing biogas from anaerobic digestion must produce at least 50% of their biogas from waste or residue.
