  1. 1. Heat GeneratingTechnologiesRuth WhartonRenewable Energy Manager8th July 2011 www.usea.org.uk
  2. 2. MCS (MicrogenerationCertification Scheme) www.usea.org.uk
  3. 3. Solar Water Heating www.usea.org.uk
  4. 4. Solar Water Heating Technology Flat plate Number of occupants 4 Collector area 4m2 Hot water tank 200litres System cost £4,400 www.usea.org.uk
  5. 5. Permitted Development Rights (SWH & PV)Permitted unless:Roof mounted • Panels protrude more than 200mm when installed.Stand alone • more than 4m in height • installed less than 5m away from any boundary • above a maximum area of array of 9m2 • situated on a wall within any part of the curtilage of the dwelling house and would be visible from a highway in Conservation Areas and World Heritage Sites www.usea.org.uk
  6. 6. Heat Pumps www.usea.org.uk
  7. 7. Heat Pumps www.usea.org.uk
  8. 8. Permitted Development Rights (Heat Pumps)Air source: • Not currently permitted development (awaiting legislation)Ground & water source: • Permitted www.usea.org.uk
  9. 9. Wood Fuel Heating www.usea.org.uk
  10. 10. Wood Fuel HeatingInformation on wood fuel and local suppliers of fuel and systemswww.nef.org.uk/logpile www.usea.org.uk
  11. 11. Permitted Development Rights (Biomass)Permitted unless: • flue exceeds 1m above the roof height (excluding the chimney) • installed on the principal elevation and visible from a road in buildings in Conservation Areas and World Heritage Sites. www.usea.org.uk
  12. 12. Renewable Heat Incentive• Still a lot of information unknown• £860 million government investment• 2 phase approach• Heat generating technologies• Systems installed from 15th July 2009 eligible• Accreditation – Product and installer MCS certificated for systems under 45kW• Automatic degression• Administered by Ofgem www.usea.org.uk
  13. 13. Domestic installations• Domestic RHI tariffs – From October 2012 alongside the Green Deal• New build homes – An RHI tariff will be considered for the 2012 phase• Consultation later in 2011 on the phase 2 RHI tariffs• Likely RHI premium payments (July 2011??) – Solar Thermal - £300/unit – Air Source Heat Pumps - £850/unit – Biomass boilers - £950/unit – Ground Source Heat Pumps - £1250/unit www.usea.org.uk
  14. 14. RHI premium payments• Installations will be eligible for a RHI tariff• Installed technologies monitored – to enable better understanding• Clear eligibility criteria in order to qualify – a well insulated home based on EPC – agreeing to give feedback on how the equipment performs• Off the gas grid key focus – fuels more expensive and higher carbon content• Details due to be announced May 2011?? www.usea.org.uk
  15. 15. Planned next steps• Draft regulations closed for comment 5th April 2011• Clearance through Commission – state aid and technical standards• Aim to get phase 1 tariffs through Parliament in July and open for applications with Ofgem thereafter• Consult on Phase 2 proposals autumn 2011• Draft regulations for phase 2 spring 2012• Launch Phase 2 RHI autumn 2012 www.usea.org.uk
