Renewable Heat Incentive RHI in freefall…..

January 9, 2017 · Posted in Government policy 

The Renewable Heat Incentive was designed to reduce CO2 emissions by replacing fossil fuel boilers in commercial use.

It would appear that the original concept has been ignored and boilers have been installed for applications that previously did not have boilers fitted… also there is growing evidence that the UK RHI is also being abused……

A good example of this is the use of subsidised boilers to dry firewood. It defies all common sense to think that any firewood merchant would have been drying firewood with oil or gas prior to the birth of the RHI, it would have been totally uneconomic. Yet there has been a rush for containerised systems to be installed to do just that but using biomass and attracting RHI subsidies.

The complete mess of the Northern Ireland Renewable Heat Incentive seems to be staying over the water, however the problems and the bad practice experienced in Northern Ireland has already happened here in the UK ….. how long will it be before someone realises that a substantial amount of money has laready been paid to the RHI here in the UK and will continue to be paid for the next 20 years.
