Renewable Heat Incentive
The Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) is a long-term financial support programme for renewable heat. The UK Government launched the RHI in November 2011 to provide payments to industry, businesses and public sector organisations, including schools, that generate and use renewable energy to heat their buildings. By increasing the generation of heat from renewable energy sources (instead of fossil fuels), the RHI helps the UK reduce greenhouse gas emissions and meet targets for reducing climate change.
Salix interest free loans
The UK Department for Education is committed to helping schools and academies become greener and save money by being more energy efficient. The department is working with Salix to promote interest free loans for energy efficiency initiatives. Salix will be accepting applications from the beginning of September through to the end of October 2013.
Energy Saving Trust grants search
The Energy Saving Trust provides a search facility for grants and offers to improve energy efficiency in the home.
Householders, organisations, schools and businesses can claim cash back for electricity they produce from eligible renewable and low-carbon sources. The new scheme provides a fixed payment for the electricity you generate, called the generation tariff. It also pays for any unused electricity that you export to the grid, the export tariff. A further benefit is that you wont have to pay for electricity that you generate and use yourself.
