Raising the standard

As a reminder, from October 05 2015, in order to be eligible to claim the RHI, all RHI participants will need to source their fuel from a BSL authorised supplier.

The Biomass Suppliers List (BSL) is a register of woodfuels that have met the RHI biomass sustainability criteria. By sourcing fuels from the List, individuals seeking to claim the RHI are able to easily demonstrate that the fuel they use complies with the RHI standards.

If you are a biomass consumer, you can search for BSL authorised fuels on the Find a Fuel website.

If an RHI applicant wishes to source fuel off their own land, they are able to register as either a Self Supplier or Producer-Trader. Full definitions for supplier types are available in the guidance on the BSL website at

Further information on applying for, and claiming RHI, for both Domestic and Non-Domestic RHI participants, is available on the Ofgem website.
