Factories and office blocks could be among buildings in the UK to benefit from more cash for renewable heating projects under new proposals set out by the Department of Energy and Climate Change. The DECC has announced it is consulting on increasing the tariff levels for heat generated by ground source heat pumps, large biomass and solar thermal equipment accredited under the Government's Renewable Heat Incentive.

Launched for the non-domestic sector in November 2011, the RHI is designed to revolutionise the way businesses are heated, cut carbon emissions and help to meet renewables targets. And Energy Minister Greg Barker says: "Now is a timely moment to look again at the tariffs. We need to make sure they are set at the right level to continue bringing forward investment and growth."

The current consultation period, which is to close on June 28, will not consider increasing tariffs for small and medium biomass projects, based on the current high level of demand for these technologies.
