Biomass Boiler Grants
What biomass grants are available?
In Ireland the SEAI have announced a biomass boiler grant in the form of a incentive tariff similar to the Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) in the UK. The biomass boiler grant scheme in Ireland is called the Support Scheme for Renewable Heat (SSRH)
Grant for Biomass Boilers
Using the Support Scheme for Renewable Heat (SSRH) will provide a revenue calculated by paying a tariff for every unit of eligible renewable heat used by a biomass boiler.
What are the rates?
The rates for the biomass boiler grant under the Support Scheme for Renewable Heat (SSRH) are shown below. It is broken up into 6 tiers, with the rates shown below being paid for the eligible heat from a biomass boiler.
How long do you get the Biomass Boiler Grant?
The biomass boiler grant in the form of the Support Scheme for Renewable Heat is paid over 15 years.

Will the boiler last as long as the tariff?
Specifying the correct boiler for each application is crucial to ensure the boiler lasts as long as the tariff and for many years after. Variables for applications using biomass include different biomass fuels, required temperatures from the boiler, the run hours on the boiler and so on are all important factors in specifying the right biomass boiler for each application.
What maintenance is required?
In addition to specifying the right boiler for the application a comprehensive maintenance program is essential to ensure longevity of the installation. The level of maintenance required varies depending on the run hours on the boiler and the fuels being used.
