ADBA PRESS RELEASE
Reacting to this morning’s [28 Feb] news from DECC that the biomethane injection tariff will be reviewed, Charlotte Morton, chief executive, ADBA said:
We welcome the announcement that the government plans to review the Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) biomethane injection tariff. The industry needs tariffs which will fairly incentivise all scales of biomethane injection, and biomethane support needs to be on a long-term footing to give certainty to developers and investors.
This early announcement from government should help to provide certainty for the industry, allowing early sight of forthcoming changes. We will continue to work closely with DECC and our members to gather evidence to ensure tariffs are set at an appropriate level.
Biomethane injected into the gas grid can deliver huge benefits to the British economy, helping to decarbonise gas supply to homes, businesses and transport, while boosting UK energy security by delivering a domestic source of energy which reduces the UK’s dependence on overseas fossil gas.
