Finding a wood fuel supplier

If you are want to claim the Renewable Heat Incentive, (the primary funding mechanism for wood fuel), you will need to ensure that you purchase wood fuel that meets RHI eligibility requirement.  You can find a list of suppliers that have proven they meet these criteria on The Biomass Supplier List (BSL). BSL authorisation does not guarantee the quality of the fuel as it is not a quality scheme; it is designed to ensure the sustainability of the fuel (in terms of carbon savings).

You may also want to check that your supplier is producing wood fuel to the quality standard required by your boiler (fuelling your boiler with the correct standard fuel is a requirement of the RHI).  Click to read more about quality standards and links to lists of suppliers that are independently certified as producing quality wood fuel.
