“Important information for new applicants with biomass plants of 500kW and under Publication date 24th September 2013 Information type Other Policy area(s) Environmental programmes
We would like to alert applicants with biomass plants of 500kW and under, that under the new air quality requirements as currently worded, their plant may not be eligible for RHI support.

According to the new air quality provisions, the required emissions testing against technical standards can in most cases only be conducted on plants over 500kW. For applicants with biomass plants of 500kW and under, if they cannot obtain the RHI emission certificate required to complete the RHI application then we will not be able to accredit them at this stage. This error has been recognised and we understand that DECC is working to rectify it by the end of the year.

Next steps for affected applicants

Applicants affected by this error will still be able to submit their application to Ofgem if they choose to do so. Applicants not in possession of a RHI emission certificate when submitting an application, should upload in its place a statement confirming their boiler manufacturer and model, and requesting that other aspects of their application is reviewed. While we can review other evidence presented in support of your application, we will be unable to accredit your installation without a valid RHI emission certificate until such a time as the regulations have been amended. “

DECC has made a statement as follows:

Thanks, John, for that information. Looks like another bureaucratic cock up! Or was it a deliberate mistake to delay payouts?

Welcome to the forum, by the way.

As usual!

We should get more engineers and scientists in government instead of all the legal beagles and those mock scientists, the economists!
