List Of RHI Beneficiaries Published

The Department for the Economy has released a list of companies who benefited from the non-domestic Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) scheme.

The Department has made the list available following a ruling issued by the High Court at the start of March. Previously, a group representing beneficiaries of the scheme had appealed against having the list released, however, they lost this appeal.

It is understood that the list is not complete but includes the names of all limited companies and limited liability partnerships that received support payments under the scheme above a threshold of £5,000, for the period from the opening of the scheme in 2012 to 28 February 2017.

The Department said that work is progressing on a separate list which will contain the names of the individuals who are in receipt of payments of £5,000 or more under the non-domestic scheme. They added that it is their intention to publish that list in the next few weeks.

The list can be found here.
