CIBSE says Green Deal Assessments for RHPP 'a welcome boost'

24 May 2013

The Chartered Institution of Building Service Engineers (CIBSE) says the Government announcement that the Renewable Heat Premium Payment (RHPP) scheme will now require Green Deal assessments will be good for consumers

The RHPP will now require a Green Deal Assessment, to ensure that those who consider installing any of the systems supported by RHPP have good advice on the likely outcome of such installations.

Green Deal Advisors have the appropriate experience and training to help mitigate the risk of faulty advice or installations from the outset, which is critical for the scheme’s success. CIBSE wants this to be made a requirement for the non-domestic RHI scheme so that those seeking support to drive down carbon emissions will be offered the same amount of competent advice.

The scheme is now offering enhanced vouchers for the payment incentive and some prices have even doubled. Hywel Davies, CIBSE Technical Director commented: “A key point identified by CIBSE members in the consultation response for the domestic RHI in 2012 was that applying the scheme to consumers who are off the gas grid will have a stronger engineering case. The focus of RHPP on off gas grid properties, together with the enhanced vouchers is an imaginative way to trial domestic renewable heat installations along the lines proposed by CIBSE.”

Buildings consume 46% of our energy in the UK. It is widely recognised that around 20% of energy used in buildings is needlessly wasted. CIBSE is passionate about improving building performance and reducing the energy gap. CIBSE also responded to the Energy Demand Reduction consultation. CIBSE's responses to the Consultations are available at www.cibse.org/consultationresponses
