SEAI have now published draft Terms and Conditions for the Support Scheme for Renewable Heat. The levels of support for Biomass Heating and for biogas appear unchanged from those indicated in December last.
We also understand from conversations with SEAI that
- SSRH will be available for all commercial applications – with no lower limit.
- The budget for the scheme is €18m per year for 15 years, the €18m budget is for biomass alone.
- It is planned that the online portal for applications will be open in September, this will allow people to become familiar with the requirements.
IrBEA will be reviewing the terms and conditions and if required will formulate a response to SEAI. Should any members have comments on same please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
