The government has confirmed it is extending the deadline for applications to the Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) scheme by a year. It was set up to encourage the uptake of renewable heat technologies among households, communities and businesses by providing financial incentives to contribute towards the UK’s 2020 goal of 12% of heating coming from renewable sources. Under previous regulations, all plants with a tariff guarantee would have needed to commence injection of biomethane by 31st January 2020 or 183 days after the date when the applicant expected the project to begin. However, they will now have until 31st January 2021 to do so following an industry campaign. According to BEIS, the government has granted 43 tariff guarantees for large-scale projects since May 2018, the majority of which produce biomethane for injection to the gas grid.
