Ofgem E-Serve has released its annual report on the non-domestic Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) for 2015-16.
The Non-Domestic Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) is open to industrial, commercial, public sector and non-profit organisations with eligible installations in Great Britain. A payment is made to organisations for every unit of renewable heat generated.
The report showed that £255mn of payments was made to participants last year, more than double as much as in 2014-15. E-Serve received 3,170 new applications, and accredited 5,394 installations (919MW of heat capacity).
The report recognised that the scheme had seen considerable changes recently, including changes to degression for biomethane last July, the introduction of sustainable fuel requirements last October, and a switch to the Consumer Price Index for tariff adjustments in March 2016.
