Commercial Renewable Heat Incentive Released by DETI

The Northern Ireland Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) is a scheme run by the Department of Enterprise, Trade and Investment (DETI) that provides financial support to non-domestic renewable heat generators and producers of biomethane who are based in Northern Ireland.

The purpose of the scheme

The primary objective for the RHI is to increase the uptake of renewable heat to 10% by 2020.

In addition to achieving the set target, it is expected that the RHI will have a number of other wider benefits in terms of fuel security, lower emissions and ‘green jobs’.

Who is the scheme for?

The scheme includes small businesses, hospitals, schools and so on, as well as district heating schemes (for example where one boiler serves multiple homes).
