star this property answer text <p>The Department considered whether solar thermal should be allowed for space heating when the scheme was being designed in 2012/2013. The decision to restrict support to domestic hot water only solar thermal systems for the domestic RHI was based on the following considerations:</p><ul><li>At the time that we made our decision, market intelligence showed that only a small minority of solar thermal systems were designed to provide space heating and there was limited performance data.</li><li>Supporting solar thermal for space heating would not present good value for money, as the RHI is taxpayer-funded – this is because solar thermal systems are only capable of meeting a small portion of a house’s heat demand, and are not as cost-effective in space heating when compared to other technologies.</li></ul><p>The Government currently has no plans to review its position on support for solar thermal on the RHI.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The Government is committed to ending the use of unabated coal for electricity generation by 2025. Government measures and support for low carbon technologies mean that coal has gone from generating 39% of the UK’s electricity in 2012 to 7% in 2017[i]. Coal’s share of electricity generation was 1.6% for 2018 Q2. Gas’ share of electricity generation was 42% for the same period[ii].</p><p> </p><p>The Department considers and analyses a range of future price scenarios and the effect on anticipated generation from coal and gas; a number of these scenarios are published as part of the BEIS Energy and Emissions Projections[iii]. Changes in gas prices are one of a number of factors that can affect the amount of coal and gas generation on the system at any particular time. Higher gas prices may incentivise some switching from gas to coal due to impacts on gas-fired power plants relative profitability in the short term. While there may be a small increase in the share of coal generation this winter, we do not expect these recent fluctuations to significantly affect the trajectory to the end of unabated coal by 2025.</p><p> </p><p>[i] <a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/statistics/electricity-chapter-5-digest-of-united-kingdom-energy-statistics-dukes" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/statistics/electricity-chapter-5-digest-of-united-kingdom-energy-statistics-dukes</a></p><p>[ii] <a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/statistics/electricity-section-5-energy-trends" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/statistics/electricity-section-5-energy-trends</a></p><p>[iii] <a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/collections/energy-and-emissions-projections" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/collections/energy-and-emissions-projections</a></p>
