Renewable Heat Incentive business applicants land 14-month extension due to coronavirus

The previous deadline of January 2021 for projects to be operational has been extended to March 2022, following a response to the RHI consultation

Non-domestic Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) scheme applicants have been granted a 14-month extension from the government to complete projects delayed by the coronavirus pandemic.

The move aims to protect investment in the renewable heat industry, provide certainty and security to workers in related supply chains and help companies avoid missing scheduled start-dates for their projects,

The non-domestic RHI offers businesses a set tariff for 20 years for generating large-scale renewable heat for the energy grid - this can be achieved through a range of technologies including biomass boilers or heat pumps.
