Commenting on the changes to the non-domestic RHI, Jonathan Tedstone Business Project Manager at Baxi Commercial said:
"It's great to see that the government has initiated some changes to the non-domestic RHI and at a time when the media is brimming with content about the launch of the domestic one. Any increase in the tariffs is a positive move for the government to make, ensuring the market is able to support low carbon technologies and alternative heating and hot water solutions.
"There is however, still room for improvement and while the latest announcement should be seen as a step in the right direction, there's more work to be done. As an industry we will continue to build momentum for low carbon technologies and tariff changes, such as these, will help make low carbon technologies a first choice in commercial applications.
"I would also like to see some support for gas driven heat pumps as an important addition for the future. We are aware that government is currently looking at the market's attitude towards these solutions but in my view, they form an important part of the scheme in the future.
"Equally, it's important that we continue to support specifiers and installers and implement training programmes and application support so that these technologies have a fighting chance in the market place. The changes undoubtedly offer the market a competitive and viable alternative to oil and LPG and will be interesting to see how the market responds.
