IrBEA has received feedback from DCENR over the last 2 weeks, the department seemed genuinely interested in working to ensure that the Bioenergy policy delivery is appropriate. It is still their intention to roll out RHI by early 2017. The timeline seems to be that there will be another consultation in late June. It will have three components: A questionnaire to related parties. Interviews with specific organisations (including IrBEA) and finally, select workshops. There will then be a final consultation early October, which will be focused both on the procedure for delivering the RHI and the technical content. Element Energy, from London has been appointed to carry out the economic review for RHI. That report is due back in September, in advance of the consultation. There will also be results out shortly on a biogas study which will feed into the consultation.
