“The Minister for Communications, Climate Action and Environment, Richard Bruton T.D., has opened the second phase of the Support Scheme for Renewable Heat (SSRH), which will provide operational support for biomass boilers and anaerobic digestion heating systems.
Applications are open today. This round of the Scheme will support businesses and farms for up to 15 years for the installation and on-going use of biomass and anaerobic digestion heating systems. The Scheme is designed to support up to 1,300 GWh of renewable heat per year (equivalent to the heating needs of circa 120,000 homes)”.
Why we need the SSRH in Ireland
- The purpose of the Support Scheme for Renewable Heat is to reduce our carbon emissions
- We are currently ranked 27th out of all 28 European countries when it comes to renewable heating
- We have a 12% renewable heating obligation to reach by 2020, we are currently at 6.5%
