ADBA PRESS RELEASE
Reacting to the news from DECC today [Wed 26] that the RHI tariffs for biomethane and biogas not be reviewed, Charlotte Morton, Chief Executive, ADBA said:
DECC is right to exclude biomethane and biogas from the review of the RHI tariffs, as we have suggested to them since they announced the potential for reviews in January.
There is a significant number of projects in the pipeline, and these do not need further reviews of tariff levels, but rather consistency and certainty in government policy.
The government’s focus should now be on issues which are holding back projects, such as the lack of preliminary accreditation for biomethane, the 200 kWth limit on support for heat from biogas combustion, and clarity on overall RHI budgets after 2015.
