Northern Ireland Non-Domestic Renewable Heat Incentive Scheme – Future of the Scheme

Topics:
Consultation opened on 11 February 2021. Closing date 09 April 2021 at 17:00.

Summary

In January 2020 the New Decade, New Approach (NDNA) document, published by the UK and Irish Governments, provided the basis for restoration of devolution in Northern Ireland. NDNA included a commitment for reform to take account of the findings of the Independent Public Inquiry into the Non-Domestic Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) Scheme and, in relation to the Executive’s potential Programme for Government strategic priority of addressing climate change, a specific commitment to closure of RHI itself and replacement with a scheme which effectively cuts carbon emissions. This consultation seeks views on options for the future of the Non-Domestic RHI Scheme.

The Department for the Economy is therefore consulting on options for the future of the Non-Domestic RHI Scheme.  The final decision on the future of the Scheme will be taken by the Executive collectively and the outcome of this consultation will assist the Executive in making its determination.
