REA RHI Roadshow

Renewable Energy AssociationThe Renewable Energy Association (REA) will be running a series of seminars to explain how the domestic Renewable Heat Incentive can help you, whether you are a company planning to supply or install the eligible technologies, a building service engineer, a social landlord, a heating consultant or anyone wandering exactly how the scheme works.

How can the Renewable Heat Incentive benefit my business? (Birmingham)

This seminar takes place in Birmingham on Wednesday 25th June and will be followed by a number of regional events, with dates to be announced.

Everything you need to know about the Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI):

  • How it works?
  • What systems are eligible?
  • What are the business opportunities and a whole lot more . . .

The introduction of the domestic Renewable Heat Incentive on 9th April 2014 for the first time allows householders to be paid for generating heat from renewable sources. As a result we expect a significant upturn in the demand for renewable heat systems leading to a rapid expansion of the supply chain.

The first REA event will take place in Birmingham where you will learn key aspects of the policy including an overview of the technologies covered and how the policy will support their growth.

Speakers include those implementing the scheme from DECC, Ofgem, MCS and RECC as well as industry experts who will be highlighting the opportunities and sharing their insights into what the policy means for the sector.

This event is a must for anybody active in the renewable heat sector, equipment suppliers and their supply chain, heat appliance installers, building energy consultants, social landlords and anyone else who is thinking about the new opportunities the scheme provides.
