The Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS; formerly DECC) has funded the BSL since its launch in April 2014. This funding was always intended to be a transitional arrangement to help establish the BSL and this funding ends on 31 December 2016. The scheme administration is necessary to ensure that fuels can be registered on the BSL, that they remain compliant with the sustainability and legality requirements, and that RHI participants are able to easily source RHI compliant fuel. To ensure the continuation of the BSL from January 2017, all BSL suppliers will need to contribute a fee.
