AECB warns of risks of Renewable Heat Incentive

AECB,* the sustainable-building association, has warned the Government that the proposed Renewable Heat Incentive is so badly designed that it could pay people to install systems that burn more fossil fuel, and, thereby, emit more CO2.

One point made by AECB is that paying for heat used, however inefficiently, rather than for energy saved or renewable energy generated or harvested, is illogical and reduces the incentive to be efficient and thereby save carbon.

It is also argued that the proposed scheme’s problems are made worse because there is no precondition for buildings or equipment to be made energy efficient before the subsidy is claimed.
