Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI)

BBSM are able to help you navigate the RHI landscape to allow you to get the most efficient and financially viable solutions for your needs.

The Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) Scheme

The Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) has been a tremendous success and resulted in over 17,000 new biomass boiler installations over the past 12 years, corresponding to over 5,000 MW of installed biomass capacity across the UK. Although the application for new tariffs ended in 2021, there are still very good opportunities for taking advantage of the RHI for new installations.

History of the RHI

The RHI was the main government support scheme for new biomass boiler system installations. It started in 2011 and offered payments to commercial and industrial sites for a period of 20 years based on the heat used by the site.

As the RHI progressed it became more flexible meaning that boilers could be moved and/or replaced and changes in size of boiler were allowed. Tariffs from boilers that had then been de-commissioned became allowed to be allocated to new boilers. This then created a market for RHI tariffs to support new boiler installations.

Improvement or Replacement

If you already have a boiler installed via the RHI we can improve or replace it with a more efficent system whilst keeping your RHI payment

New RHI Tariffs

RHI tariffs are available which can be attached to a new biomass boiler installation, resulting in £10,000’s of government subsidy.

New RHI Tariffs

If you have an RHI tariff for a boiler that you no longer require, we would be interested in discussing the purchase or other options.

  •  I would just like to pass on our thanks to Peter, for getting our heating up and running last night. He truly went the extra mile, and made sure all things checked out before he left our building. He's a true asset to your company, and I only wished all contractors had the same commitment to there customers. Thank you once again, brilliant service!!!

    Academy- January 2024

  • You have shown us what a good (excellent!) biomass boiler installation looks like. You have become an essential partner in our net-zero aspirations.
    You have set a new standard for heating system efficiency. You have set a new standard when it comes to working collaboratively with suppliers.

    Public sector customer

  • BBSM installed the first of our biomass boilers in 2021. We found the company to be very reliable, trustworthy, and they worked efficiently and to a high standard. Based on our experience, we asked BBSM to install our second, and then our third biomass boiler system.
    We have engaged BBSM to carry our on-going scheduled service and maintenance. I would highly recommend them.

    Industrial customer

  • BBSM's team responded with flexibility and with great professionalism when the scope of the project had to be amended due to circumstances outside of their control, and always demonstrated a solutions led approach.
    We could not be happier with the outcome of the project. The new boiler is delivering significant fuel savings and takes considerably less time from our on site team to maintain. In fact, the project has been so successful we have subsequently contracted BBSM to extend the biomass system to provide hot water to a block of holiday apartments on the same site. I would be happy to recommend BBSM unconditionally.

    Hotel customer

  • BBSM were a professional company to work with. They stood behind their work, and we are very happy with the installation, their continued support, and their level of service.
