HPA warning over further RHI delays

The Heat Pump Association (HPA) says the latest delay in bringing in the Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) 
reforms could damage the industry.

The HPA expressed its disappointment and frustration after learning the delays will now extend beyond the 

The overdue reforms have suffered a number of setbacks due to procedural formatting issues and the 
snap general election and subsequent changes to Government have altered the delivery timeframe 
once more. 

Mike Nankivell, President of the HPA, said: “This prolonged process of reform could potentially damage 
the renewable heat industry, creating uncertainty and confusion over tariffs in both domestic and 
non-domestic markets.

“Although we are once again left frustrated by the delays, we recognise that when the changes are finally 
implemented there will likely be a silver lining in the form of significantly improved tariffs. In addition, any 
installations registered from 12 December 2016 up until the new regulations are introduced will not be 
subject to heat demand limits but will be eligible for any improved tariffs, allowing operators to maximise 
the potential of their systems until the changes come into force.”

The RHI is an incentivised scheme designed to promote the use of renewable heat and help the UK reduce 
its carbon emissions in line with EU energy targets. Initially introduced for non-domestic installations in 
November 2011, followed by the domestic scheme in April 2014, those who successfully join the scheme 
can expect to receive quarterly payments for 20 or seven years respectively.

The Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) is expected to provide an update on the 
proposed reform following Parliament’s summer recess. 

The HPA will continue to support the overall objectives of the RHI and is on hand to advise BEIS when needed.
