The Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI), launched in 2012, is a UK Government scheme set up to encourage uptake of renewable heat technologies amongst householders, communities and businesses through financial incentives. It is the first of its kind in the world and the UK Government expects the RHI to contribute towards the 2020 ambition of 12% of heating coming from renewable sources. The Renewable Heating Incentive can be split into two categories, Domestic RHI and Non-Domestic RHI. Domestic RHI is available to homeowners, private landlords, social landlords and self-builders.
