Biomass Funding

Funding is available for Biomass installations through a Renewable Heat Premium Payment of around £950 in support of having Biomass installed in all areas of Scotland including Glasgow.

If you live in England, Scotland or Wales, you are eligible to apply for the Renewable Heat Premium Payment.

Note* those who have recently removed a mains gas heating system or currently heat their home with mains gas are only eligible to apply for Solar Thermal.

If you heat your home by electricity, oil, liquid gas, or solid fuel then you could also apply for air to water source heat pumps, ground - or water - source heat pumps and biomass boilers.

  • The property must be owned by you or if you are a tenant you must be purchasing the system yourself and have permission from the owner of the property;
  • If the property is a new build, then you must retain ownership of the property either as the occupier or as the private Landlord;
  • Property must have loft insulation to 250mm and cavity wall insulation (where practical);
  • You should have all necessary planning and environmental permissions in place;
  • The product and installer you go with must be certified under the Microgeneration Certification Scheme (MCS)Solar Keymark (or equivalent).
