RHI Update Following Spending Review

1st December 2015

Following George Osborne’s Autumn Spending Review, the RHI looks to be safe. However during the speech he referred to a £700million saving from the scheme through reforms.

An extract from the Spending Review and Autumn Statement 2015 documents states:

The government will increase funding for the Renewable Heat Incentive to £1.15 billion in 2021 to ensure that the UK continues to make progress towards its climate goals while reforming the scheme to improve value for money, delivering savings of almost £700 million by 2020-21.

In order to make the savings annual caps have been mentioned. Further clarification on this is expected in the coming weeks. You can download the full spending review document here.

Following the Spending Review the government have today released the January 2016 RHI degression figures, sub 200kW biomass is the only area impacted. The rate has been dropped from 4.18p to 3.76p.
