Grant Scheme To Replace RHI



The Government has announced that it will replace the Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) with a 'Clean Grant Scheme' as it clears up the future of low carbon heat.


It has been announced that the non-domestic RHI scheme will be closed to new applicants from April 2021 while the household scheme has been extended to March 2022.


The Government is currently seeking consultation for the future support of Low Carbon Heat:

  • a Green Gas Scheme (GGSS): increasing the proportion of green gas in the grid through support for biomethane injection.

  • a Clean Heat Grant:support for Heat Pumps and in certain circumstances biomass, through an upfront capital grant to help address the barrier of upfront cost.

  • budget control and financial management of the spending proposals for green gas and building technologies.

It is proposed funding of up to £4,000 for each household or business that invests in renewable heating, including heat pumps.


An eligible list of technologies that apply is due to be announced.
