Support Scheme for Renewable Heat
The Support Scheme for Renewable Heat, launched by the Irish Government in December 2017 puts in place a scheme which will financially support your business with the replacement of fossil fuel heating systems to a renewable energy solution such as Biomass Boilers for large heat demand non-domestic customers. The scheme is open to commercial, industrial, agricultural, district heating, public sector and other non-domestic heat users.
The scheme is aimed at reducing your energy costs and will have a huge impact on your margins and competitiveness in business. The scheme will help to bridge the gap between the installation and operating costs of renewable heating systems and the conventional fossil fuel alternatives. Designed to contribute to Ireland meeting 2020 renewable energy targets, the Support Scheme for Renewable Heat will consist of two types of support mechanisms:
- An ongoing operational support (paid for up to 15 years) for new installations or installations that currently use a fossil fuel heating system and convert to using biomass heating systems or anaerobic digestion heating systems.
- A grant (of up to 30%) to support investment in renewable heating systems that use heat pumps.
The maximum tariffs paid will be 5.6 cents per kilowatt hour of energy produced from biomass heating systems. The tariffs paid will reduce with increasing output reflecting the economy of scale associated with larger system.
