Renewable Heat Incentive

Homeowners who install eligible renewable heating technology can receive quarterly cash payments over seven years under the Government’s domestic Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) scheme. Ground to water heat pumps, air to water heat pumps, certain solar thermal panels, biomass boilers & pellet stoves with integrated boilers can all be eligible, subject to terms and conditions, if they provide space heating and/or hot water for the home. All systems must also be listed on the Domestic Renewable Heat Incentive Product Eligibiity List.

The RHI scheme has encouraged the uptake of renewable heat technologies by homeowners, communities and businesses alike. IBD has helped many homeowners, commercial organisations and contractors to take advantage of both the domestic and the commercial RHI schemes.


IBD can assist in applications for RHI funding, which is made through the Ofgem website, and can recommend the most appropriate combination of renewable technologies for any project.

This tarrif details can be seen in full on the Energy Saving Trust web-site.
