The Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) is a long-term financial support programme for renewable heat. The RHI pays participants of the scheme that generate and use renewable energy to heat their buildings. By increasing the generation of heat from renewable energy sources (instead of fossil fuels) the RHI helps the UK reduce greenhouse gas emissions and meet targets for reducing the effects of climate change.

RHI is available for both domestic home owners, business and commercial installations and offers a 20-year payment commitment for non-domestic and 7-years for domestic, from the government for generators of heat from renewable sources. Any system which supplies heat to a property is eligible for the RHI payment.
