Support Scheme for Renewable Heat

The Irish Government has launched the Support Scheme for Renewable Heat putting in place a scheme which will financially support the replacement of fossil fuel heating systems with renewable energy such as Biomass Boilers for large heat demand non-domestic customers.  The support provided on this scheme will allow you to convert your current fossil fuel heating system to a biomass fuel system. 

The scheme is aimed at reducing your energy costs, which will have a huge impact on your margins and competitiveness in business.   The Support Scheme for Renewable Heat will consist of two types of support mechanisms:

  • An ongoing operational support (paid for up to 15 years) for new installations or installations that currently use a fossil fuel heating system and convert to using biomass heating systems or anaerobic digestion heating systems.
  • A grant (of up to 30%) to support investment in renewable heating systems that use heat pumps. Gilles Wood Chip Boiler HPK-RA


The maximum tariffs paid will be 5.6 cents per kilowatt hour of energy produced from biomass heating systems and 2.95 cents per kilowatt hour of energy produced from anaerobic digestion heating systems. The tariffs paid will reduce with increasing output reflecting the economy of scale associated with larger system.

The proposed tariffs for the Support Scheme for Renewable Heat as set out by the Government are as below.
