AD-CHP ≤ 500 kW €150/MWh
AD-CHP > 500 kW €130/MWh
AD (non CHP) ≤ 500 kW €110/MWh
AD (non CHP) > 500 kW €100/MWh
Biomass-CHP ≤ 1500 kW €140/MWh
Biomass-CHP > 1500 kW €120/MWh
Biomass Combustion (including co-firing in existing plant*[subject to a change in the Refit terms and conditions to permit this]):
For using energy crops €95/MWh
For all other biomass €85/MWh
(Limited to 30% of the maximum rated capacity co-firing in any plant until 2017, 40% between 2017 and 2019, and 50% thereafter.)
These tariffs will be indexed to Consumer Price Index (CPI) and offered on a 15 year basis.
CHP utilising biomethane, displaced from the source of biomethane, will qualify for REFIT on that portion of the fuel mix deriving from bioenergy.
Limits per technology:
Anaerobic Digestion: 50MW
Biomass CHP: 100MW
Biomass Combustion (including co-firing in existing plant*subject to a change in REFIT terms and conditions to permit this): Until 31st December 2015 160MW
To be accepted into the scheme, applicants must demonstrate that planning permission has been obtained and there is evidence of a grid connection. Once in receipt of a letter of offer, a series of conditions must be fulfilled as set out in the REFIT Terms and Conditions.
Please note that the planned terms and conditions are not yet final as they are subject to the state aids clearance which has yet to be obtained from the European Commission. An announcement on the Department’s website will be made in due course following this progress regarding dates for submission of application under REFIT II.
