The Domestic Renewable Heat Incentive (Domestic RHI) is a government
financial incentive to promote the use of renewable heat. Switching
to heating systems that use naturally replenished energy can help
the UK reduce its carbon emissions.
People who join the scheme and stick to its rules, receive quarterly
payments for seven years for the amount of clean, green renewable
heat their system produces.
The scheme's open to anyone who can meet the joining requirements.
It's for households both off and on the gas grid.
People off mains gas have the most potential to save on fuel bills
and reduce carbon emissions.
schemes: Domestic and Non-Domestic
The Renewable Heat Incentive has two schemes - Domestic and Non-Domestic.
They have separate tariffs, joining conditions, rules and application
processes. We administer both.
Each application can only be to one of the schemes. To decide
which, consider the below information, alongside our factsheet
'The Renewable Heat Incentive - Domestic or Non-Domestic?' in
the publications and updates section at the bottom of this page.
Key to joining is that the renewable heating system heats only
a single property which is capable of getting a domestic Energy
Performance Certificate (EPC) open key term pop-up. The EPC is
the proof we need that your property is assessed as a domestic
'dwelling'. Without one, you won't be able to apply and can't
join the scheme.
An EPC gives information about a property's energy use, plus recommendations
on how to reduce energy and save money. It's required every time
you buy, sell or rent a property. It's included as part of a Green
Deal Assessment, which is a requirement for most to join the Domestic
Generally, if the renewable heating system is in commercial, public
or industrial premises, then you would apply to the Non-Domestic
RHI. This can include small and large businesses, hospitals, schools,
and organisations with district heating schemes where one heating
system serves multiple homes.
it's more complicated
If your property set-up doesn't quite fit into standard descriptions,
or if your renewable system supplies heat to more than one building,
it can be more difficult to decide which scheme to apply to. Or,
if you'd be eligible to join either.
We'll assess it case by case, but very generally:
- properties with a home office within a house that has, or can
get a domestic EPC, should be eligible for the Domestic RHI.
- properties with annexes attached to the house are normally covered
by one domestic EPC and should be eligible for the Domestic RHI.
- properties with a main house and a self-contained outbuilding
(with its own bathroom and kitchen), both heated by a renewable
heating system, would normally have an EPC for each. They would
not be eligible for the Domestic RHI.
- properties with a main house and other outbuildings all heated
by a renewable heating system may not be eligible for the Domestic
