Subject: RE: RHPP for residential barges
Thanks for your email. Unfortunately you will not be able to claim RHPP for a biomass boiler on your barge.
As stated in the FAQ’s under 3.5 What is the eligibility criteria? Renewable heating systems must supply a permanent residential building (mobile homes, caravans, house boats and systems heating swimming pools only are not eligible).

How boring is that?!
I was quite excited about having an eco boat. We were even contemplating the possibilities for the world’s first passive barge, but no. Crushed, we slink back to the mucky, black, coal-guzzling, ex-industrial, poorly-insulated shack on water from which we were briefly so bold and foolish enough to almost launch our noble, clean and starry plan.
