Government reveals first successful applicants of the RHI

The Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC) revealed the first two successful applicants for the Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) on Friday 6 January. The RHI is an innovative new scheme to provide financial support to renewable heating technologies. The first recipient is Sheffield-based umbrella supplier Booth Brothers who will receive subsidies for an underfloor heating system powered by a water-source heat pump. The second is Yorkshire-based Broadgate Farm holiday cottages that will receive heating and hot water powered by a ground-source heat pump. Climate change minister Greg Barker said the RHI will “help the UK shift away from fossil fuels, reducing carbon emissions and encouraging innovation”.
