Domestic Renewable Heat Incentive Product Eligibility List (PEL)

This spreadsheet shows the makes and models of renewable heating products which we’ve already assessed as eligible for the scheme based on information supplied to us by the Microgeneration Certification Scheme (MCS). It’s updated regularly and includes instructions on how to use it.


Products showing as ‘to be determined’ on the Product Eligibility List

If a heating system is listed as ‘to be determined’ on the PEL, it means we haven’t yet received all of the information we need to determine eligibility. The majority of these products are biomass boilers or stoves that don’t have an RHI Emissions Certificate, so we’ll need confirmation of there being a certificate for the product before we can confirm its eligibility.

What you will need to do

All biomass products installed after scheme launch need an Emission Certificate (RHI)open key term pop-up. If a biomass product has no air quality certificate (you can check if it’s missing on the PEL), we've produced a template below for manufacturers to have completed by a testing laboratory. Once a certificate has been produced, it should be provided by the manufacturer to HETAS (the biomass approval body) via RHI ECLIST. The PEL will be updated once HETAS have confirmed the certificate’s eligibility.

Otherwise it will be technical data we are missing. In these cases the product’s MCS certification body will need to provide the missing information to MCS. You should speak to your installer about this.

If you are a manufacturer or distributor

If you wish to supply missing data or have your listing reviewed, you should contact the relevant MCS certification body to have them update the information supplied to MCS, which will then in turn be provided to us to update the PEL.

Emission Certificate (RHI)

This is used to give an indication of the amount of pollutants likely to be emitted by a biomass product when burning specific fuel types. If there’s information missing, it won’t be considered a valid RHI emission certificate for the scheme.   More.
