The Irish Department of Communication, Climate Action and Environment (DCCAE) has launched a consultation process for the long awaited Renewable Heat Incentive. Interested parties are asked to respond by 03 March 2017. The Incentive could be a significant driver for investment in renewable heat technologies in Ireland. It is particularly welcome to see biogas included in the Incentive consultation. This sector, well established across Europe has a significant chance of success in Ireland and could help meet the EU's 2020 Renewable Heat target of 12%.
