The primary objective of the support scheme for renewable heat is to increase the level of renewable energy in the heat sector. This will contribute to meeting Ireland’s 2020 renewable energy targets and reduce greenhouse gas emissions. The government funded scheme will support the adoption of renewable heating systems by commercial, industrial, agricultural, district heating, public sector and other non-domestic heat users not covered by the emissions trading system.

The Scheme aims to

  • Bridge the gap between the installation and operating costs of renewable heating systems and the conventional fossil fuel alternatives; and
  • Incentivise the development and supply of renewable heat.

The Scheme will support

  1. An installation grant
  2. On-going operational support

The installation grant is now open for applications. It is anticipated that the ongoing operational support component of the Scheme will open for applications in late 2018/early 2019.  This is subject to state aid approval from the European Commission.
