Non-Domestic RHI

Government subsidies for renewable space and water heating

The Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) is a government scheme designed to increase the use of renewable energy to generate heat for UK properties.

If you install renewable energy heating such as Air Source or Ground Source Heat Pumps, Biomass Boilers or Solar Thermal systems, you may qualify for payments from the Renewable Heat Incentive.

For electricity-generating renewable technologies such as Solar PV and Wind Turbines, please refer to The Feed-in Tariff.

The Non-domestic RHI is open to industry, businesses and public sector organisations. The scheme is designed to incentivise businesses by generating a healthy return on an investment in renewable heating technology.

Table of Non Domestic RHI rates for renewable heating technologies

Your renewable heating output will be metered and your RHI payments are split into two tiers. For the first 1,314 of run hours your system produces you are paid at the tier one rate. Over 1,314 run hours you are paid at the tier two rate.
