Statement on publication of details of businesses benefitting from the RHI Scheme

Economy Minister Simon Hamilton MLA has today provided an update on the publication of the details of businesses benefitting from the RHI Scheme.

The Minister said: “I believe that it is absolutely imperative that there is complete openness and transparency around the RHI scheme and particular in respect of the naming of businesses benefitting from the scheme. It has always been my intention to publish this information. However, I have equally always been mindful that I can only do so in accordance with my legal obligations.

“Last month, my Department wrote to all of those participating in the non domestic RHI scheme indicating my desire to publish recipients details. The Department is currently analysing the responses received and are following a clear process as required under section 10 of the 1998 Data Protection Act. The process will balance the competing interests of transparency and the right to privacy and protection in accordance with the law.

“I anticipate that the process will be concluded by the beginning of next week and it would be my intention to publish RHI recipient details on Wednesday 25 January.”
