Renewable Heat Incentive Overview and Feed In Tariff Update – Cardiff

21 Dec
Wednesday 21st December 2011
8am – 11.30am
£20 + VAT (Club members) £30 + VAT (non-members)

The RHI opened for applications on 28th November and is the world’s first financial support mechanism designed to revolutionize the way renewable heat is generated and used.

The RHI is designed to support emerging technologies and industries in the UK, strengthening security of energy supply and reducing reliance on fossil fuel based heating systems. 

This half day event from CEW in partnership with BRE Wales and the law firm Hugh James will help those interested in becoming renewable heat generators to benefit from secure and guaranteed long-term income streams.

Target audience is local authorities and property owners with non-domestic buildings and housing associations with flats that could be converted to communal biomass systems.

Delivered by independent experts with first-hand, up-to- date knowledge of RHI, this event will equip you with a clear understanding of the benefits of the scheme and address the options that should be considered before participating.  

Up to date information will also be provided on the Feed-in-tariff (FIT) with an assessment of the financial viability of projects following the recent tariff changes.

The following areas will be covered:

  • Worked examples of the technologies
  • Technical issues and practical challenges
  • Making a business case and financing options
  • Mechanisms for building owners and occupants to share 
  • Financial benefits
  • Supplier offers – what is best value
  • Interaction of the FITs, the RHI, and the Green Deal / ECO
  • Planning issues

In addition a legal perspective on the RHI will also be delivered by the leading law firm Hugh James who have been supporting a number of organisations in delivering FIT and RHI projects.

Delivery & Financing Solutions
An accurate assessment of building energy demands is essential to predict RHI revenues.  BRE provides independent predictions of RHI income based on energy modelling techniques that include occupant behaviour.  We can also advise on a wide range of other technical issues that will be required for the financial planning of any RHI funded project.

Project Support
We offer a number of project management services including contract administration, tender documentation & analysis, project management and quality assurance.

Who Can Benefit From the RHI?
The first round of the RHI provides support to non-domestic buildings and communal heat supply to houses.  Under the RHI flats which are currently off mains gas can be considered for communal biomass heating systems.

  • Property Owners
