Ofgem has recently announced further changes to the Non-Domestic Renewable Heat Incentive, this time in the form of Woodfuel Sustainability.
There has been a great success with the installation of biomass boilers however there are growing fears that they are being used to burn unsustainable fuels defeating the point of the ‘Renewable’ heat incentive.
As such, new rules have been introduced to ensure the fuels are sourced sustainably and, from Autumn 2015, this applies to existing participants as well as new ones.
To meet the criteria you will have to choose one of the following options:
Until this scheme is introduced in autumn 2015, the fuel does not have to meet the sustainability criteria. Therefore, if you have stores of un-sustainable fuel, Ofgem’s advice is to consume this fuel now and begin stocking up on sustainable fuel. When the transition comes, if you continue to use unsustainable fuels you can lose your RHI payments.
The Biomass Suppliers’ list is operated by Gemserv on behalf of Ofgem. To register, contact them on: email@example.com or 020 7090 7769 or you can contact Ofgem on 0845 200 2122 with further questions.
If you have or are considering installing a biomass boiler and need professional advice, please feel free to contact Chris Thyer or Calum Gillhespy on 01748 829 210.
