January 2017 RHI degression announced

Small, medium and large biogas has continued its tariff nose dive with another 25% reduction for all sizes; not surprising as this technology is more than 400% over budget.

Biomethane has been reduced by 10%.

Small biomass has had another nibble from its tariff with another 5% reduction.

These are set to be the final tariffs before the whole scheme is shaken up.  Results for the consultation should be published before Christmas, with changes due to come into effect in April 2017. We are expecting to see all biomass tariffs (small, medium and large) consolidated into a single tariff band with a Tier 1 rate somewhere between 2 – 2.9p/kWh.
