Northern Ireland Renewable Heat Incentive

Northern Ireland Renewable Heat Incentive

The Department of Enterprise, Trade and Investment (DETI) suspended the Non-Domestic Northern Ireland Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) to new applications from 29 February 2016.

From 9 May 2016, the new Department for the Economy (DfE) assumed the roles and responsibility of DETI including policy responsibility for the Northern Ireland Non-Domestic RHI. We continue to administer the scheme on DfE’s behalf.

What is the Northern Ireland RHI?

It’s a government incentive, similar to the one in Great Britain, that helps businesses, public sector, and other non-domestic and non-profit organisations in Northern Ireland meet the cost of installing renewable heat technologies. DfE sets the policy and tariffs.

Further information about the scheme is available on the DfE website.
