The Feed-in Tariff Scheme is the longest running incentive introduced by the Government in 2010. The FITs scheme was launched to encourage people to generate electricity from renewable sources such as solar PV (photovoltaic) and wind turbines. This scheme is open to both the domestic and non-domestic industries.
The Renewable Heat Incentive is a financial incentive scheme to encourage the uptake in renewable heat generation. The RHI commenced in November 2011 for the non-domestic industry and it is scheduled that the incentive scheme will launch in Summer 2013 for the domestic market.
The Renewable Heat Premium Payment Scheme (RHPP) is a Government scheme which is a one off payment to householders to help them buy renewbale heat technologies. The RHPP scheme is only available to the domestic market and this incentive is likely to make way for the domestic Renewable Heat Incentive next summer.
A heat pump is a device that harvests renewable heat energy from the sun which is stored in the ground or ambient air around your property.
A wind turbine's rotor blades are aerodynamically engineered to extract energy from the prevailing wind and then turn a turbine to generate electricity.
Solar photovoltaic (PV) systems convert energy from the sun using solar panels, into electricity which can be used to run appliances and lighting.
Solar thermal is a technology which harnesses solar energy from the sun and turns it into thermal heat energy.
