DETI - Assessment of the Potential for Development of Renewable Heat in NI
DETI wishes to appoint a consultant to:
a.undertake an independent assessment to identify and quantify the current scale, future sustainable growth potential and optimum size and scale of the renewable heat sector in Northern Ireland. The successful consultant will be required to provide a statistical evidence base to verify their findings;
b. make recommendations as to the options for encouraging the deployment of renewable heat technologies in Northern Ireland. It is anticipated that GB legislation for a Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) will be forthcoming, the Energy Act 2008 allows DECC the ability to provide financial support for renewable heat through the RHI. NI is not included in this measure and therefore an assessment will need to be made on the most appropriate options of incentivising and stimulating the renewable heat market in NI. The successful consultant must therefore examine the appropriateness of a RHI for NI and will be expected to provide an analysis of the needs or otherwise for any short term incentive that may be required in the absence of anticipated legislation for a RHI in NI in the short term; and
c. make recommendations for an appropriate evidence-based renewable heat target and to consider how this target might impact on existing energy markets in NI.
