DECC delays RHI phase 2, consults on cost controls

27 Mar 2012

The government has launched proposals to carefully manage the budget of its Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) for businesses seeking to install green heating systems such as biomass boilers, but confirmed homeowners would be unable to take advantage of payments for another year.

The Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC) yesterday published a short consultation proposing to introduce a temporary measure to prevent the £860m incentive scheme exceeding its budget.

The department wants to suspend registrations at one month's notice once 80 per cent of the budget has been allocated. This measure is expected to be introduced in the summer.
