Government Support Extended for Biomass Fuel

Government Support Extended for Biomass Fuel

By on Jun 29, 2020 in Biomass fuel, Blog |

Companies using biomass fuel have been handed a boosted with the news that the UK government has given users a 14-month extension to get their low-carbon heat generators up and running.

This is part of the Renewable Heat Incentive scheme that offered businesses a set tariff for 20 years on large-scale renewable heat sources such as biomass boilers and heat pumps.

P.H Winterton and Son are one of the country’s leading providers of biomass fuel plus we are part of the government’s recognised Biomass Supplier List. For our latest blog, we are going to look at this positive news in greater detail.

Renewable Energy Statement Explained

The statement from the government said the extension brings ‘vital clarity’ to firms who were in danger of missing the start dates for their projects, project investment in the renewable heat industry plus bringing certainty to people in specialised UK supply chains.

In the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, the government is looking to support projects who were in danger of missing out on the initial deadline of January 2021; making them eligible for another allocation of tariff guarantees.

The 12-month extension to the domestic Renewable Heat Incentive runs until 31st March 2022 and prevents 1.2 million tonnes of carbon dioxide from polluting the atmosphere over the lifetime of smaller-scale projects. This will be achieved by converting 18,000 households onto low-carbon heating.
