The 100th installation to be completed under the UK’s Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) is being celebrated, after being accredited on the 19th June last.

The Meikleour Trust, a Scottish estate, installed a 500kWth biomass boiler to supply heat via a district heating system to a range of buildings including the main house, a greenhouse, holiday lets and other outbuildings.

The scheme made use of pre insulated pipe work supplied by REHAU.

The owner also intends to expand the system to a planned housing development in the future. The fuel is local woodchip that is sourced from sustainable local forestry, said the UK District Energy Association in a statement.
