RHI Reforms - emergency legislation

We have received an update on the reforms from Renewable Energy Association in light of the general election announcement.

BEIS aims to lay emergency legislation before parliament to extend degression trigger lines and update Microgeneration Certification Scheme standards on heat pumps. They want to do this prior to parliament being dissolved on 3rd May so that it can take effect before the next degression announcement at the end of May.

Laying the RHI Reforms before parliament will be delayed until after the general election with an expected timescale of eight weeks for approval. However, with so many other bills also being delayed, these timescales seem optimistic at best.

The RHI scheme will continue as it is for now.
