The Department of Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy currently has no plans to carry out a comparative assessment of installation guidance for heat pumps in relation to the Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI). The Office of Gas and Electricity Markets (OFGEM), who administer both domestic and non-domestic schemes, publish extensive guidance on the RHI, including guidance around the eligibility of heat pumps for the RHI. The Chartered Institution of Building Services Engineers publishes codes of practice for large scale non-domestic heat pumps.

The Ministry for Housing, Communities and Local Government is responsible for Energy Performance Certificates. Guidance is available on the gov.uk website.
