Transcript

  • 1. SEMINAR Funding for micro-renewables
  • 2. Funding for Micro-renewables Rob Snaith Micro-Renewables and Microgeneration Specialist Energy Saving Scotland advice centre Highlands and Islands 21 st July 2010
  • 3. Energy Saving Scotland home renewables advice <ul><ul><li>Scotland – wide service delivered by the five Energy Saving Scotland advice centres. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Team of advisors, 1 dedicated and 7 Outreach Officers throughout the Highland and Island area. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>The service is open to any householder with a realistic interest in installing a renewable energy system for their main residence. </li></ul></ul>
  • 4. <ul><ul><li>Free home visit: </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Reduced SAP survey on household. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Impartial advice and recommendations on practical energy efficiency measures and renewable technologies. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Advice on financial incentives, and next steps to take. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>We try to advise on practical options for customer in their current circumstances, but also for the property in general should they decide to sell. </li></ul></ul></ul>
  • 5. <ul><li>Post Visit: </li></ul><ul><li>Personalised report summarising home visit discussions, and further detail on recommendations. </li></ul><ul><li>Referrals for any available energy efficiency grant funding. </li></ul><ul><li>On-going support with any issues throughout the system planning and installation process. </li></ul>
  • 6. Financial Incentives <ul><li>Grants </li></ul><ul><li>Closing on 23 rd July! </li></ul><ul><li>Feed-In-Tariff / Clean Energy Cashback </li></ul><ul><li>Introduced in April 2010 </li></ul><ul><li>Renewable Heat Incentive </li></ul><ul><li>Due to be introduced in April 2011 </li></ul>
  • 7. Feed-in-Tariff / Clean Energy Cashback <ul><li>Incentive for electricity producing technologies, from April 2010 </li></ul><ul><li>Generation Tariff – Set payment for every kilowatt generated </li></ul><ul><li>Export Tariff – Flat rate of 3p per kW, or customer can negotiate separate deal with energy company </li></ul><ul><li>Installations commissioned from 15th July 2009 are eligible for full tariff </li></ul><ul><li>Payments no less frequent than quarterly </li></ul>
  • 8. Tariff Levels <ul><li>Generation tariff </li></ul><ul><li>Most important for householders are: </li></ul><ul><li>PV (<4kW) retrofit: 41.3p/kWh </li></ul><ul><li>PV (<4kW) newbuild: 36.1p/kWh </li></ul><ul><li>Wind (<1.5kW): 34.5p/kWh </li></ul><ul><li>Wind (1.5-15kW): 26.7p/kWh </li></ul><ul><li>In context, on average we pay 13p/kWh to import </li></ul><ul><li>Export tariff – 3p/kWh </li></ul>
  • 9. Worked example Total electricity demand of house = 4000kwhr/year 2.5kW Wind Turbine Total generation (4,500kWh) Income £1,201.50 Onsite use (2250 kWh) £292.50 saved Export (2250kWh) Income £67.50 Total saving £1561.50/year, gives a payback period of around 15 years.
  • 10. Process for receiving FITs Basic EE measures in place Decide on which technology and check planning 3 quotes from MCS installer Install technology Installation registered with Gemserv Inform energy supplier of completion You receive FITs
  • 11. Additional information <ul><li>Income generated through FITs are tax free for domestic customers </li></ul><ul><li>Indexation of all tariffs by the Retail Price Index in future years ensuring they rise with inflation </li></ul><ul><li>Tariff level decreases each year for new entrants (as of 2012) </li></ul><ul><li>Up to landlords and tenants of properties to come to an arrangement about receipt of payments. </li></ul><ul><li>In general, ownership of payments belong to property holder e.g. person sells property - FIT stays with property </li></ul>
  • 12. Renewable Heat Incentive <ul><li>Scheme similar to Clean Energy Cashback, but for heat producing technologies </li></ul><ul><li>Expected to start in April 2011, under consultation at the moment so no details confirmed yet . </li></ul><ul><li>Proposals are: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Scheme will support air, water and ground-source heat pumps, solar thermal, biomass boilers, renewable combined heat and power </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Output will not be metered, but ‘deemed’ – based upon reasonable heat requirement which the installation is intended to serve </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Payments will last for the expected lifetime of technology. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Consultation documents can be found here: </li></ul></ul><ul><li>www.decc.gov.uk/en/content/cms/consultations/rhi/rhi.aspx </li></ul>
  • 13. RHI Worked Example <ul><li>Average 3 bed semi-detached house with decent insulation, likely to have a deemed heat requirement of </li></ul><ul><li>around 13 000kWhr / year </li></ul><ul><li>Wood fuel boiler system costing around £10,000 </li></ul><ul><li>RHI would give an annual payment of 13 000 x 9 pence </li></ul><ul><li>= £1,170 per year, for 15 years. </li></ul><ul><li>Therefore simple payback period is £10,000 / £1,170 = 8.5 years </li></ul>
  • 14. Web sites <ul><li>Energy Saving Trust </li></ul><ul><li>For Home Energy Generation Selector and FIT calculator, advice on EE. </li></ul><ul><li>www.energysavingtrust.org.uk </li></ul><ul><li>Microgeneration Certification Scheme (MCS) </li></ul><ul><li>For certified installers and products </li></ul><ul><li>www.microgenerationcertification.org </li></ul>
