Opened 16 Oct 2018

Overview

Defra’s Clean Air Strategy, published in May 2018, proposed that further support under the Renewable Heat Incentive should not be available for biomass installations in urban areas with access to the gas grid. This consultation sets out details of the proposed restrictions and asks for views on the scope and nature of these changes to RHI eligibility.
