Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) event
Tuesday 26th March 2013
According to the Department for Energy and Climate Change (DECC), approximately 40% of the UK’s energy demand results from the heating of offices, factories and warehouse facilities. With increasing pressure on businesses to become more energy efficient – both financially and environmentally – effectively addressing this ‘space heating’ requirement has become a priority.
To that end many companies are looking towards highly efficient, holistic heating solutions, which incorporate established renewable technologies, as part of their sustainable building strategy.
The Renewables Heating Incentive (RHI) presents a significant financial opportunity for businesses to reduce their heating spend and to profit from the use and production of renewable heat; both increasing business sustainability and helping them prepare for and contribute to the low carbon economy.
The Crichton Carbon Centre held a breakfast event on Tuesday 26 March where attendees heard directly from Jamie MacLeod of Ofgem on the ins and outs of the Renewables Heat Incentive (RHI) for businesses. at the Titan Enterprise, Clydebank, Glasgow.
