Operational support is provided for selected renewable energy technologies by way of a multi-annual payment (for a period of up to 15 years), on the basis of prescribed tariffs. Each tariff will set the amount of support that the scheme participant will receive in respect of each unit of heat energy used for an eligible purpose. Payments are calculated on the basis of eligible heat use and the relevant tariff. Payments will be made to participants on a quarterly basis for a period of up to 15 years.
Renewable heat system eligible for the tariff:
• Biomass boiler or biomass HE CHP heating systems
• Biogas (anaerobic digestion) boiler or biogas HE CHP heating systems
