The Biomass Supplier List is a scheme which provides participants of the Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) with a straightforward way to demonstrate that their fuel complies with the RHI’s standards.

What is the eligibility criteria for the Biomass Supplier List?

Suppliers (such as P.H Winterton and Son) registering fuels on the list will be required to verify that the emissions from the cultivation, processing and transport of the biomass fuel achieves a saving of at least 60% against the EU fossil fuel average for heat when used in a boiler which achieves a 70% average seasonal efficiency.
This is also calculated using the life cycle assessment methodology set out in the European Commission’s 2010 report ‘Sustainability requirements for the use of solid and gaseous biomass sources in electricity, heating and cooling SEC 2010 65 Final’.
