The Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI)

The non-domestic Renewable Heat Incentive (NDRHI) is a scheme formed by the UK Government to encourage businesses and commercial or industrial entities to install renewable energy technologies for heating purposes by providing financial incentives and support.

How much financial support

Companies and organizations that install eligible renewable heat technology receive financial support for twenty years by receiving quarterly payments. The payments will be made based on the actual heat output of the installation using a tariff based on the type of technology being used and the size of the installation.

Eligible technologies

You can claim this financial support for:

  • Biomass boilers
  • Heat pumps (ground, water, and air source)
  • “Deep” geothermal
  • Solar thermal collectors
  • Biomethane and biogas
  • Combined heat and power (CHP) systems


Although the RHI has been extended to March 2022, as it stands today (December 2020) the NDRHI will close to new applications on 31 March 2021.
