Archbishop Sentamu Academy in Hull is receiving £20k per year in renewable heat payments thanks to expert advice from AMP

As AMP was already supplying the academy with high-quality woodchip, our advisors suggested helping to make an RHI application on their behalf. This involves getting all relevant documents together, verifying boiler meter compliance, collecting heat loss assessment reports, collecting evidence of boiler name plates and configurations and filling in all necessary documentation. Now the Academy can enjoy £20k per year in renewable heat payments.

The Vision

Having installed a 500kW wood chip boiler in 2010, the Academy assumed it would be too difficult and complicated to apply for RHI when it was introduced in 2012.

The Academy received high quality woodchip fuel from AMP so were aware of AMP’s consultancy capabilities.

The Solution

With experience of helping more than 40 organisations successfully gain RHI payments, AMP were more than qualified to help the Academy with the RHI application.

Within a few months of making the RHI application, the Academy achieved RHI accreditation and is now receiving £20,000 per year for the next 20 years – resulting in a total income of around £400,000.

“I’d encourage anyone in a similar position to start the process immediately so that can claim their payments and ensure that they maximise their investment in biomass, just as we have helped Archbishop Sentamu Academy to do. We believe a whole host of organisations are missing out on RHI payments which are rightfully theirs, so I’d encourage any organisations who are not sure if they are eligible for RHI to get in touch with us.”
