The Renewable Energy Association (REA) has said that the introduction of the domestic Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) could make 2014 a breakthrough year for renewable heating, including biomass boiler heating systems. 

Despite the non-domestic RHI opening back in 2011, the domestic RHI has been continually beset by delays. However, energy minister, Greg Barker, recently took to Twitter to confirm that the domestic RHI will launch before Easter following over three years of delays to the scheme.

Graham continued: “It is vital that installers present all the information to consumers clearly and do not attempt to install systems in unsuitable homes. It is equally important that consumers ask all the right questions and get three quotes before signing on the dotted line. We’re working to ensure that customers and installers alike understand the right way to approach a transaction to ensure a positive outcome for all parties.”

The REA is hosting a domestic RHI seminar on 10 April in London and 25 June in Birmingham which will look at how the RHI can benefit your business, examining the scheme’s design and regulatory requirements.
