Guide could revive RHI, says B&ES

The Building & Engineering Services Association has launched a guide to heat metering, which has been identified as a major stumbling block for those seeking to take advantage of the government’s Renewable Heat Incentive.

Launched at the Museum of Brands in West London last night, the Guide to Good Practice: Heat Metering for the RHI has been created to provide clarity to the situation.

The B&ES also states that the publication is intended to establish industry-recognised standards to match the requirements of the RHI.

The launch event represented both first and last occasions for the association.

It was the first publication launched under the B&ES brand and the event was the last for president Bob Shelley, as his one year term comes to an end.

Speaking at the Museum of Brands, Mr Shelley referred to the poor uptake of the RHI, with just 77 successful applications to date.

The government is aiming for approximately 110,000 commercial RHI installations by 2020.

Mr Shelley stated that the RHI could still provide business opportunities for building service contractors.

“We are confident that the introduction of the guide will help stimulate renewed interest in the commercial returns that RHI can deliver to the sector,” he said.

The Guide to Good Practice: Heat Metering for the RHI is available free to members from B&ES Publications.

Non members can purchase the guide for £50.
