Independent heat metering reports

The Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) requires an independent metering report be generated for Biomass installations that are deemed to be 'complex' or greater than 1MW.

Forward Energy are specialists in metering for Biomass and Solar thermal installations and meet the RHI definition of a 'Competent Person' to undertake metering reports. Our RHI metering reports are tailored to the requirements of Ofgem and include the following as a minimum:

  • Verification that all meters meet the accuracy and technical requirements of the RHI and the Measuring Instruments Directive (MID)
  • A description of each meter's purpose along with certification and calibration data
  • Confirmation that meters and sensors have been installed in accordance with manufacturer's instructions and RHI requirements
  • Verification the submitted schematic diagram is an accurate representation of the installation.

Please refer to the RHI page for more information on Metering requirements
