Relief all round as Air-to-Water heat pumps included in non-domestic RHI

DECC responds to industry pressure and puts first air-source heat pumps into incentive scheme

The Heat Pump Association says it welcomes DECC’s announcements on the non-Domestic Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI), including Air to Water heat pumps, which it describes as “a technology poised to make a major contribution to the UK’s renewable agenda.”

Tony Bowen, President of HPA, commented:

“HPA and the whole industry welcomes the outcome of the latest consultations, to which so much time has been devoted by both DECC and industry experts. The combined impact of revised tariffs for ground source heat pumps and the long awaited addition of air-to-water heat pumps promises to have a very significant effect on the adoption of these technologies and the achievement of the goals of the RHI policy. We look forward to assisting with policy refinements over the next few months.”
