The Spring Budget announced in March a measure to extend the plan, followed by a consultation on the implementation of the plan. In its formal response to the consultation published last week, the EIB states that it will not reform the eligibility criteria for the extension or that it will thoroughly review existing rules and procedures for the transition period. New entrants can apply to join existing inter-professional agreements and the application deadline has been extended to November 30, 2020. The government`s response contains a general summary of the answers after the questions, followed by the government`s response in all cases. We have included a summary of the responses to the demand for evidence of future reform of the system, but no decision has yet been made on a future CCA system. The Department of Energy and Climate Change and industry have negotiated energy efficiency targets for each sector – the sector`s commitment. The objectives were then incorporated into framework agreements between inter-professional organisations and the Environment Agency. Umbrella agreements also list processes that are eligible for a CCA. In 2020, the BEIs negotiated new targets for 2021 and 2022. The current CCA program began in April 2013 and will continue until March 31, 2025. The consultation also provided an overview of how a future CCA programme beyond March 2025 could make better use of taxpayers` money and support the UK`s commitment to net zero. The responses stressed that a reformed future industrial system could contribute to the transition to net zero, while supporting the competitiveness of businesses. Respondents also spoke about the eligibility criteria for a future system, the need to support both energy efficiency and CO2 savings, and the potential for simplification of future systems and the political landscape.
The CCA programme, first launched in 2001, aims to encourage energy and CO2 savings by setting energy efficiency targets, while helping to reduce energy costs in energy-intensive sectors, by providing a substantial discount on the climate-change tax (CDC). The current targets provide a basis for organisations to improve the energy efficiency of facilities contained in agreements over an eight-year period to ensure their contribution to the UK`s objectives in exchange for a saving of almost $300 million per year. We are looking for questions on a proposal to renew the climate protection system (CCA) and on possible reforms if there was a future CCA system. See below the summary of the commercial benefits for membership of the scheme: See list of contacts of the interprofessional organization and interprofessional agreements related to the framework. We will implement the changes listed in the government`s response to the extension of the Climate Change Treaty (CCA), including the definition of the necessary legislation.
