The Biomass Suppliers List (BSL) is a list of woodfuel that has proven it meets the eligibility requirements for the Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) scheme. It allows RHI participants to easily demonstrate to Ofgem that the fuel they are using in their biomass boilers meets the RHI sustainability criteria required to claim their RHI payments.
Fuel Quality Requirements
BSL authorisation does not guarantee the quality of the fuel as it is not a quality scheme. Early in 2021 legislation was introduced that made a number of changes to the Renewable Heat Incentive. The changes to the RHI which impact upon accredited Biomass Suppliers List (BSL) fuel suppliers came into effect on the 1st April 2022. The legislation places requirements on both self-suppliers AND commercial suppliers (Producers, Traders and Producer-Traders). Visit the Fuel Quality page to find out more about the legislative requirements and take action to ensure your fuels comply.
