Combined Heat and Power Quality Assurance Regulations 2016 (S.I. No. 1108 of 2016).

Type of law

These Regulations establish for Northern Ireland a renewable heat incentive scheme under which owners of plants which generate heat from specified renewable sources and meet specified criteria may receive payments at prescribed tariffs for the heat used for eligible purposes. Payments may also be made to biomethane producers who produce biomethane for injection. The Regulations also provide for the procedures for accreditation, registration, change of ownership and preliminary accreditation with the Department of Enterprise, Trade and Investment. Amendments are made to insert a definition of the Combined Heat and Power Quality Assurance ( CHPQA ) Standard. The Standard aims to help ensure the requirements in Article 14 of Directive 2012/27/EU on Energy Efficiency (the Energy Efficiency Directive ) are met.
