We are proposing a change to Ofgem’s operational approach in relation to installations using ground source heat pumps (GSHPs) so that, in order to be eligible for Non-Domestic RHI support payments, recovered heat will no longer be required to be stored in the ground prior to circulating the heat pump.

We welcome views on any of the issues set out in this consultation. We would particularly welcome stakeholders’ views on any additional implications which might result from the proposed change. Unless clearly marked as confidential, responses will be published on our website. Please email responses to: NDRHI.heatpumps@ofgem.gov.uk.

The consultation will be for four weeks and we would welcome responses by 23 February 2016.
