Changes to domestic RHI eligibility

On 5 February 2015 the Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC) announced their intention to make a number of small changes to the domestic RHI. 

These included:

  • Removing the requirement for a Green Deal Assessment for social landlords
  • Making cooker stoves eligible
  • Making high temperature heat pumps eligible
  • Reflecting updated MCS Standards in the scheme
  • Clarifying the scheme rules around properties made up of more than one building
  • Other small clarifications to ensure the original policy intent is being delivered.

Full details of the changes can be found on DECC’s website here.
