Posted: 18 January, 2022. Written by Virginia Graham

The Domestic Renewable Heat Incentive (DRHI) scheme will close to new applicants on 31 March 2022. The scheme will continue for existing generators for the remainder of their payment schedules.

Ofgem has issued draft guidance on the (DRHI Scheme Closure and is seeking comments on it by 7 February. Ofgem intends to publish the final version of the guidance in early March 2022. In the meantime Ofgem will in the next two weeks publish guidance for anyone seeking to apply for the DRHI scheme before it closes on 31 March 2022. We will publish this importance guidance as soon as it is available. 

If you are contracting with consumers to install a heating system that you intend will qualify for DRHI it is very important that you read this guidance on making an application and make consumers aware of it to avoid disappointment.
