Renewable Heat Incentive for Ireland announced following completion of Element Energy’s economic analysis

Posted on

On 7th December 2017, the Minister for Communications, Climate Action and Environment, Denis Naughten TD, announced the introduction of the Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) for Ireland after securing Government approval.

Element Energy has been working closely with the a cross-departmental working group including the Department for Communications, Climate Action and Environment (DCCAE), the Sustainable Energy Authority of Ireland (SEAI) and the National Treasury Management Agency (NTMA) to design the scheme, which will support the replacement of fossil fuel heating systems with renewable energy for non-domestic users with a large heat demand. The RHI aims to close the gap to Ireland’s target for 2020 of 12% of energy consumed in the heat sector to come from renewable sources, and to drive a reduction in carbon emissions, particularly among large heat users outside the EU’s Emissions Trading Scheme.

More information is available on the DCCAE website.
