1246: Biomass heating and the Renewable Heat Incentive
This paper has been summarised from ‘Biomass heating and the Renewable Heat Incentive - time for the sleeping giant to come awake?’ The report is an analysis for Enagri by Boyle Consulting
Year of Publication2011
For the biomass heating sector, the new Renewable Heat Incentive package is a mixed bag; though generally positive and with enough of an uplift to stimulate the sector. It will be important to carry out detailed heat load assessments and boiler sizing, then link this to the tariff scales to see what is the optimum level for investments. Uncertainties include the lead time in companies ‘closing deals’, delays in massively expanding boiler and fuel supply chains, and having sufficient trained engineers to install and commission boilers.
