  • Government’s position on eligible heat uses 
  • Subsidy limits for very large plant.
  • Eligibility rules where multiple installations are accredited at a single site
  • The process for registering bio-methane producers
  • Evidence requirements in relation to environmental permits
  • Replacement plant and estimated metering arrangements
