This Practice Note introduces the background to the non-domestic Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) and the Renewable Heat Incentive Scheme Regulations 2018 (2018 RHI Regulations), SI 2018/611. The 2018 RHI Regulations were laid before Parliament in February 2018 and came into force on 22 May 2018. The 2018 RHI Regulations revoked and replaced the Renewable Heat Incentive Scheme Regulations 2011 (RHI 2011), SI 2011/2860 (as amended), which previously underpinned the non-domestic RHI in Great Britain (GB). The Renewable Heat Incentive Scheme and Domestic Renewable Heat Incentive Scheme (Amendment) Regulations 2019 (2019 RHI Amendment Regulations), SI 2019/1052 came into force on 17 July 2019, amending 2019 RHI Regulations (see: LNB News 27/06/2019 1).
