UK aligns standards for heat pump subsidies with Energy-related Products Directive
The UK will offer a financial incentive to consumers that install renewable heat energy generating technologies certified under the Microgeneration Certification Scheme, an independent third party standard. The standard for heat pumps has been changed to align with the requirements of the Energy-related Products Directive.
This was notified in the EU’s technical regulation information system on 11 May.
The Domestic Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) scheme is for home-owners and private and social landlords who want to install renewable heating systems in their homes in England, Wales and Scotland.
