Important changes to the RHI (Renewable Heat Incentive) scheme for domestic and non domestic installations have been ratified by Parliament and will come in to force on 20th September 2017

The changes are very similar to what was included in the RHI Reform document which came out at the end of 2016, with key information as follows:


Non domestic/Commercial RHI

Single band for all non domestic/commercial biomass boiler installations regardless of boiler output

Tariffs are 2.96p/kWh (Tier 1) and 2.08p/kWh (Tier 2)
Tier 1 extended to 35% of load factor (3,066 hours per annum)

The revised scheme will provide good returns on investment for those choosing a biomass installation.

The table below gives an indication of RHI return:

Boiler size
(kW)   

     New Scheme
     (£ payback per annum)

  New Scheme
  (£ payback over 20 years)

100

     9,075

  181,500

300

     27,226

  544,520

500

     45,377

  907,540

950

     86,216

  1,724,320

1,900

     172,432

  3,448,640

Notes: Figures assume running hours of 3,066 annually and exclude annual increases linked to ROI


Domestic RHI

Revised rate of 6.54p/kWh for biomass boiler installations

Number of kWh per annum capped at 25,000, which equates to £1,635 per annum / £11,445 over the schemes 7 year period

As with the previous scheme an Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) is required for the property to determine the heating and hot water load

Over the past 12-18 months there has been a significant rise in the use of waste wood as a fuel for biomass boilers.

This has lead to confusion and concerns surrounding the quality of product, particularly where treated and untreated waste wood is being mixed and used in appliances that are unsuitable and unable to deal with the contaminants. Due to the seriousness of concerns and the potential health and environmental issues, the Environment Agencies are focusing on illegal activity with waste wood as an urgent priority.

To raise awareness of this, Ofgem has produced a waste wood awareness factsheet, which can be found here .


Using waste wood in your boiler?

If you are using or intending to use waste wood to fuel your boiler ( including A grade ) you need to be aware that burning waste wood is subject to environmental regulatory controls and that you hold the correct environmental permit or have registered and are complying in full with an exemption from needing to have a permit. In addition to this participants of the RHI scheme must ensure that the fuel they are accepting from their supplier and burning in their boiler is appropriate to their installation, ie. it is of the right quality and type.

Ensuring adequate filtration and emissions control

Boilers with a fuel through put of between 50kg to 3 tonnes per hour will require a permit to burn waste wood from the Local Authority, which depending upon the boiler and fuel type, may require additional filtration in order to comply with emissions requirements. This could be in the form of bag/sleeve or ceramic filtration. 


Ashwell Biomass is one of the UK's leading and original biomass specialists and has a range of filtration products and is happy to advise on the most appropriate solution for individual installations.
