To ask the Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change, with reference to the finding of the Evaluation of the Renewable Heat Premium Payment Scheme Phase Two, published by his Department on 28 January 2015, that 78 per cent of renewable heating installations in private homes were likely or very likely to have gone ahead in the absence of subsidy, what assessment he has made of the scope to revise that scheme to ensure better value for money.

The Renewable Heat Premium Payment (RHPP) scheme ran from August 2011 to the end of March 2014, when it closed to new applicants. Renewable heat installations in private homes are now supported through the domestic Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI).
