The Support Scheme for Renewable Heat in Ireland (SSRH)
The Support Scheme for Renewable Heat (SSRH) is a government funded initiative designed to increase the energy generated from renewable sources in the heat sector.
Heat output is measured using a heat meter and payments are made over a period of 15 years.
Are you generating heat with fossil fuels? Fossil fuel carbon taxes will increase by 400% in the next 10 years Our Wood pellets are 100% carbon neutral and not subject to carbon tax SSRH will pay you for every kWh of heat generated with wood pellets Our Wood pellets are 100% carbon neutral and not subject to carbon tax 1 mwh of heat from wood pellets could receive up to €38,000 per annum through SSRH
In 2021, the share of renewable energy in the heat sector stood at 6.8% in Ireland compared to the EU average of 22%. A renewable energy obligation is currently being created and launched in 2024 that will address this issue.
However, Ireland’s key renewable heat system that was created in 2019 remains open for businesses. The Support Scheme for Renewable Heat (SSRH) was launched in 2019 to help Irish businesses to move from fossil fuels to renewable biomass heating systems.
A qualifying business generating 1MWh of heat would be entitled to claim up to €38,120 per annum for 15 years
