The Renewable Heat Incentive

Renewable Heat IncentiveThe Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) is a UK government scheme designed to encourage the use of energy derived from naturally sustainable sources as part of a programme to address overall carbon emissions. The scheme has domestic and non-domestic variants.

Approved fuel suppliers who have demonstrated that their fuel has been responsibly and sustainably produced are listed under the Biomass Supplier List (BSL) registry (click here to visit the BSL web site). Domestic users seeking to source RHI-approved fuel supplies are obliged to choose their supplier from those listed in the BSL registry.

Woodsure act as technical advisors to the BSL, in particular by gathering evidence about responsible woodland management and sustainability in the fuel production methods of its registrants. Click here to find out more about the different types of wood fuel available.
