Grants and Incentives

Grants and Incentives

The European Union passed legislation to encourage the use of renewable energy sources (RES) in 2009 (2009/28/EC). The RES Directive’s article two defines which sources of energy are deemed renewable. It includes aerothermal (energy stored in air), hydrothermal (energy stored in water) and geothermal (energy stored below the earth’s crust). The Directive explicitly recognizes heat pump technology as necessary to make use of these renewable sources.

The Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) will provide financial incentives to projects which install heating systems that harness renewable energy sources in order to encourage industrial and commercial heat consumers to switch to greener technologies. It will be open to the commercial, industrial and public sectors. This includes small businesses, hospitals and schools as well as district heating schemes and agricultural uses.


Who benefits from the RHI?

Commercial, industrial or agricultural heat users ranging from chicken farms to apartment blocks can benefit from RHI payments. The aim of the incentive is to encourage the replacement of fossil fuel heating systems in existing buildings and to promote the installation of low carbon heating systems in new projects.

Early application is rewarded as larger grants will be available to the earlier applicants.

As well as the successful completion of numerous large and small scale projects currently benefitting from the RHI in the UK, Ashgrove has also been involved in the consultation process in Ireland engaging directly with the Department of Communications, Climate Action and Environment who are utilising our experience with the UK scheme.
