Government Incentives

The government has introduced two main incentive schemes which may be applicable to distilleries; the Feed in Tariff (FIT) for local power generation, and the Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) for local heat use from renewable sources. Dependent on the technologies used either or both of these tariffs may be applied for. A brief explanation of both schemes as they can be applied to distilleries is given below. Full information on both these schemes is available from DECC website sections on FITs or RHI
