Qualitative Research with the Non-Domestic Supply Chain for Large Biomass InstallationsBack
This study, commissioned by the Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC) elicits the views of the supply chain for large biomass installations in the non-domestic sector on the effectiveness of the Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI).
The study forms part of a wider independent evaluation of the influential RHI which informs a government consultation on potential changes to the scheme. It explores views on:
- How successfully the RHI has been delivered;
- How the large biomass installations market is adapting to the RHI;
- What impact the RHI is having on the large biomass installations industry; and
- What impact the RHI is having on the development of renewable heat technologies.
It also covers a number of research themes that emerged during the evaluation, such as the technological dominance of biomass; the impact of the biomass tariff degression; and boiler sizing.
