Renewable energy technology

The UK government has previously provided funding incentives to install renewable technologies, these were the Feed in Tariff (FiT) for electricity and Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) for heat. These schemes worked by providing a fixed rate of return for every kWh of every renewable unit of energy produced. In March 2019 the FiT scheme closed to new applicants and the Non-Domestic RHI closed to new applicants in March 2021.

There are currently no UK government funding programmes similar to these schemes in operation.
