To ask the Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change, what discussions he has had with Ofgem on its change of interpretation of the Renewable Heat Incentive Scheme Regulations 2011, as amended by the Renewable Heat Incentive Scheme (Amendment) Regulations 2014, in respect of the definition of plant in relation to the eligibility criteria set out in Regulations 9, 11 and 12.

Ofgem’s interpretation of the Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) regulations is set out in its RHI Guidance Volumes 1 and 2.

This guidance was last revised in August 2014 and includes updated guidance on Ofgem’s interpretation of regulations 9, 11 and 12.

Ofgem’s definition of plant varies by technology. Regulation 11 refers to biogas plant. For biogas installations, Ofgem’s interpretation of the definition of plant did not change as a result of the Renewable Heat Incentive Scheme (Amendment) Regulations 2014.
