The RHI policy has been designed to provide renewable heat, which contributes towards the UK’s Renewable Energy Directive (RED) target, in the most cost effective way. As such, we calculate value for money for the scheme in units of pence per kilowatt hour (p/kWh) of support, and look at comparative costs of producing renewable energy from other renewable sources.
