SEAI (Sustainable Energy Authority in Ireland) are now offering a financial incentive to business owners for the installation of non-domestic Biomass Boiler Systems in the Republic of Ireland. The incentive, called the Support Scheme for Renewable Heat, or SSRH, will pay a set amount per kWh of heat produced on a tiered basis. Businesses will receive quarterly payments over the course of 15 years.
The SSRH is a government funded initiative, designed to increase the energy generated from renewable sources in the heat sector. It will contribute to meeting Ireland’s 2020 renewable energy targets, on which we are lagging behind. It will also contribute to reducing greenhouse gas emissions.
