UK Government considers extension to non-domestic renewable heat incentive

Case Studies

The Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) is proposing a 12 month extension to the application deadline for the non-domestic renewable heat incentive (RHI).

The extension, which would see the deadline move from 31st March 2022 to 31st March 2023, will only affect applicants who already have a Tariff Guarantee or have successfully made an extension application. It is being proposed due to the Covid-19 related delays experienced by organisations installing low-carbon heating projects. 

All technologies under the non-domestic RHI are eligible, with the exception of biomethane, due to the imminent arrival of the Green Gas Support Scheme.

One question is posed by BEIS in the consultation: 

non-domestic renewable heat incentive question

Responses to the above should be sent to by 20 December 2021. Further information can be found on the government’s website.
