Summary

The Renewable Heat Incentive Scheme and Domestic Renewable Heat Incentive Scheme (Amendment) Regulations 2019 amended the Domestic Renewable Heat Incentive Scheme Regulations 2014 and the Renewable Heat Incentive Scheme Regulations 2018 on 17 July 2019.

What has been updated?

Amendments to the Domestic Renewable Heat Incentive (dRHI)

Under the scheme, tariffs paid are reduced should ‘expenditure triggers’ on certain types of installation be exceeded due to high levels of deployment.

The 2019 regulations set revised expenditure thresholds for installations assessed against the scheme up to and beyond 30 January 2021. Thresholds are specific to each technology under the scheme.

Amendments to the Non-domestic Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI)

Tariff guarantees allow applicants to the dRHI to secure a set tariff rate before certain types of installation (e.g. solid biomass combined heat and power, biomethane or geothermal) are commissioned and fully accredited for the incentive.

The 2019 regulations extend the availability of tariff guarantees from 31 January 2020 to 31 January 2021 for applications made on or after 17 July 2019. 

Scheme Budget Control (Degression)

Under the scheme, tariffs paid are reduced should the forecast for total expenditure reach a certain point. Access to the RHI would also be restricted to new installations.

The 2019 regulations set revised total expenditure thresholds for each technology under the scheme up to and beyond 30 January 2021.
