The Renewable Heat Association Northern Ireland is the body representing the Renewable Heat Industry (owners, trade bodies, suppliers, installers, users) in Northern Ireland. The Renewable Heat Industry is a strong, credible and crucially important part of our energy and economy mix.

The issues surrounding the Renewable Heat Incentive, recently and widely receiving much exposure in the media, have created the need for a single body speaking with one voice, to represent the interests of those who have genuinely and honestly taken part in this scheme. The association does not support in any way the inappropriate use of heat generation. Following a meeting with broad representation from across the industry, including installers, boiler owners and agricultural organisations, it was decided to create the Renewable Heat Association Northern Ireland (RHANI).

Driven by the industry and by robust legal advice, the RHANI:-

  • Will represent the industry
  • Will be made up of members, who will pay for membership
  • Will have a Board of Directors
  • Will communicate with DfE and Regulatory bodies regarding RHI

With the current vacuum in collective industry representation, the role of RHANI is vital.  Our priority is to sustain the existing conditions and build the future for this vital industry.

RHANI is a Registered Company Limited by Guarantee.
