A national roadshow promoting the Department of Energy & Climate Change’s recently-launched Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) will be paying a visit to the North East on Tuesday, July 8.
The roadshow, which will be held at the Work Place conference centre, in Newton Aycliffe, will focus on the advantages the scheme offers for organisations, businesses and renewable energy installers across the region.
Launched in April, the initiative is the world’s first long-term financial support programme for renewable heat.
Those who install a technology which generates heat from a renewable source – such as solar thermal and biomass systems – will receive a subsidy over a seven year period, designed to pay back the capital cost of the equipment and installation.
By increasing the generation of heat from renewable energy sources and reducing reliance on fossil fuels, the RHI aims to help the UK reduce carbon emissions and meet targets for reducing the effects of climate change.
The event, which is being hosted by sustainable energy company Tadea along with Energise Events, is free to attend.
Business development manager at Tadea, Alan Jones, said: “Thanks to the launching of the domestic RHI scheme back in spring, and recent changes made to the non-domestic scheme, every building in Britain will now be able to feel the benefits of renewable heating systems.
“At Tadea, we believe that there is a huge amount of potential in Renewable Heat Incentive Scheme.
“The advantages it offers to businesses and other organisations in the North East region are immense, and this event is designed to help people find out just how they can – and should – get involved.”
In the morning, the event will focus on the opportunities for the commercial and industrial sector, looking at the potential impacts of the RHI and the Feed in Tariff, as well as the importance of energy management to businesses and organisations.
The afternoon, then, will feature presentations from the Department of Energy and Climate Change as well as gas and electricity market regulator OFGEM.
Delegates are welcome to attend either session, or stay for the entire day.
