Life cycle analysis is currently not reflected in the eligibility criteria for the feed-in tariffs (FITs) scheme. However, all aspects of the scheme including eligibility for FITs, are under consideration as part of the comprehensive review of the scheme this year.

We are currently considering the eligibility criteria for the renewable heat incentive. No final decisions have yet been taken and the criteria will be published for consultation at the end of the year. Details of the Renewable Heat Premium Payments scheme, including its eligibility criteria, will be set out shortly.
