Support Scheme for Renewable Heat (SSRH) Information Seminars

13 March 2020
Type Event Proceeding

SSRH Information Seminars which took place on Tuesday, 10 March in Teagasc Ballyhaise and Wednesday, 11 March in Teagasc Moorepark.

The Support Scheme for Renewable Heat (SSRH) is a government scheme that provides financial support to convert to renewable heat for a 15-year period. The scheme will be administered by the Sustainable Energy Authority of Ireland (SEAI) and technologies covered in the non-domestic sector include heat pumps, solid biomass, including combined heat and power. For biomass it provides a continuous income stream for 15 years in a bid to ensure renewable heat is commercially attractive when compared to fossil fuels.

The seminars covered the principles of biomass heating systems. Aspects considered include:

  • Interpretation of eligibility rules for biomass boilers
  • Biomass resources and sustainability criteria
  • System quality and performance
  • How the reduction in the farm’s carbon footprint could be of advantage in the market place
  • Consideration of payback on the investment
