E-Serve

We're E-Serve. We’re specialists who work with energy companies and consumers to administer the government's green energy and social schemes. Find out more about who we are and what we do.

Domestic Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI)

The Domestic RHI is a government financial incentive to encourage a switch to renewable heating systems. It’s a way to help the UK reduce carbon emissions and is for households both off and on the gas grid.

Non-Domestic Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI)

The Non-Domestic Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) is a government environmental programme that provides financial incentives to increase the uptake of renewable heat by businesses, the public sector and non-profit organisations.

Feed-in Tariffs (FIT)

The Feed-in Tariff (FIT) scheme is a government programme designed to promote the uptake of a range of small-scale renewable and low-carbon electricity generation technologies.

Renewables Obligation (RO)

The Renewables Obligation (RO) is the main support mechanism for renewable electricity projects in the UK.

Renewable Energy Guarantees of Origin (REGO)

The REGO scheme exists to promote and increase the contribution of renewable energy sources to electricity production across the EU.

Climate Change Levy (CCL) exemption

The Climate Change Levy (CCL) is a tax on UK business energy use (electricity, gas, liquid petroleum gas and solid fuel) charged at the time of supply.

Non Fossil Fuel Obligation (NFFO) / Scottish Renewable Obligation (SRO)

The NFFO and SRO schemes are no longer open to new generators, but existing contracts will continue until the last of them expires in 2019.

Energy Company Obligation (ECO)

The Energy Company Obligation (ECO) is a government scheme to obligate larger suppliers to deliver energy efficiency measures to domestic premises in Britain.

Social programmes

E-Serve administers two social programmes that have been created by the government: the Warm Home Discount and Government Electricity Rebate. Each provides different kinds of support to domestic energy customers.
