Update UK - Next Steps on Renewable Heat

Progress on support for renewable heat hots up with the publication of three consultations on the Coalition’s Renewable Heat Incentive scheme (RHI) on 20 September 2012.

Key proposals in the consultation include: Indicative tariff ranges for air source heat pumps (6.9-11.5p/kWh), biomass boilers (5.2-8.7p/kWh), ground source heat pumps (12.5-17.3p/kWh) and solar thermal technologies (17.3p/kWh) that are MCS certified and meet relevant required standards Payments for householders over seven years for each kWh of heat produced for the expected lifetime of the renewable technology and based on deemed heat usage Tariff levels set to provide a better return for householders living off the gas grid Budget management system similar to one introduced for the Feed-in Tariffs scheme Minimum energy efficiency requirements based on Green Deal assessments The closing date for this consultation is 7 December 2012. There is already cash available for renewable heat for householders under the Renewable Heat Premium Payment (RHPP) scheme, set to run until March 2013 ...Zum vollständigen Artikel
