ADBA responds to RHI announcement

Welcoming yesterday's announcement on the future of the Renewable Heat Incentive and committing to working with government to resolve remaining issues, Charlotte Morton, chief executive, ADBA said:

"We are pleased that government has published its response to this consultation on the Renewable Heat Incentive. In discussions with ADBA this week, DECC officials have reiterated the government’s commitment to delivering renewable heat through biogas and biomethane. This deployment will be critical to meeting the UK's 2020 targets, along with closing the energy capacity gap identified by Ofgem in recent weeks.

"We are, however, concerned that today’s announcement does not give developers the certainty they need. With tariff degression in place, preliminary accreditation is important and it is disappointing that it has not been brought in at this point. Further scheme reviews are a clear risk to certainty, and we believe the RHI instead needs to be given the chance to bed down so that developers can get projects off the ground. We look forward to working closely with government to resolve these points."
