MAKING MONEY FROM RENEWABLE HEAT INSTALLATIONS (RHI)
In 2010 the Government successfully introduced the Feed in Tariff (FITS) for electricity generated from renewable sources and the market for Solar PV has boomed. This year they will be launching a similar scheme for HEAT generated from renewables; the Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI).
Final details about the scheme – originally expected in December – could come anytime soon, with a start date of July 2011 for non-domestic installations, RHI payments for households are expected to start in Autumn 2012.
It is proposed that this will support technologies such as air, water and ground-source heat pumps, geothermal energy, solar thermal, biomass boilers and renewable combined heat and power and biogas.
About the workshop:
This practical workshop, presented by the National Energy Foundation, one of the groups working with Government on this issue, will cover;
- what this means to those working in the construction sector
- an overview of the technologies
- finding the sales opportunities
- making sure that you can advise customers on the details behind the ‘money making’ headlines.
The workshop will provide an overview of appropriate heating technologies and will cover topics including legislation and policy, the financial impact of the RHI and the relationship between MCS (Microgeneration Certification Scheme) and the RHI. The day will also provide a good opportunity to network with other like-minded organisations.
NEF is right at the heart of RHI discussions and input. NEF run the Secretariat of the Ground Source Heat Pump Association (GSHPA) and are in regular contact with the relevant Government departments on the development of the RHI.
Because of NEF’s central position in the development of the RHI, it is very well placed to share the details and implementation of the RHI to delegates attending this workshop. NEF is particularly knowledgeable on the Microgeneration Certification Scheme (to which the RHI is linked) as members of NEF staff have sat on all the relevant development committees for this accreditation scheme since its inception in 2006 and have been actively involved in the integration of MCS and the RHI.
Who is the workshop aimed at?
This workshop is aimed at SME's and others wanting to gain a further insight into the Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI).
Householders and the general public with an interest in the subject and who want to learn more about the RHI are welcome to attend, although please note that currently the focus of the course is not on the domestic benefits / incentives of the scheme; as these are due to come into operation in line with the Green Deal in 2012.
