Therefore, if you are not yet part of the CCA system, now is the time to consider membership, to have access to these vital CCL rebates, while improving energy efficiency and reducing CO2 emissions. The deadline for new applications to the Environment Agency (EA) is September 30, 2020. When the CLIMATE change tax was introduced in the United Kingdom, the position of energy-intensive industries was taken into account because of their energy consumption, the requirements of the integrated pollution prevention and control system and their exposure to international competition. As a result, a 65% tax rebate was granted to sectors that agreed on targets to improve their energy efficiency or reduce CO2 emissions. The electricity rebate increased to 90% in 2013.  Each of the 53 eligible professional organizations has either basic or underlying agreements. Umbrella agreements are negotiated between inter-professional organizations and the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (formerly DECC). The underlying agreements are held by individual sites or groups of sites owned by an organization or operator and are managed by interprofessional organizations. A novelty objective is used when the site produces two or more products or groups of products with very different energy intensities, or where current operations and product lines have changed since the base year (in this case, each product group has a defined kWh/tonne) the CCAs are voluntary agreements that set targets for eligible industries for energy efficiency and carbon dioxide reduction (CO2). An underlying agreement is made by an operator for a site or group of sites within a given sector. It contains energy efficiency or carbon efficiency targets adapted to their mode of operation under the framework agreement.
The reduced rate certificate lists the entities eligible to apply for a discount on the CDC and is updated on the last business day of each month. By clicking on this link, you will be able to data.gov.uk where you can download a table of the establishments included in the discounted price certificate. The climate change tax was introduced by the government in 2001 to encourage “energy-intensive” companies to improve energy efficiency. It has been applied to electricity, gas, liquefied gas and coal, but not to oil, where the tax burden is already considerable. The government felt that the tax would raise awareness of climate change among businesses and, if it changed behaviour, would be an effective instrument to reduce CO2 emissions. Businesses should not be deprived of a rebate that could pay off a significant portion of the climate change tax. If the operator`s target unit achieves its objectives at the end of each reference period, the facilities remain eligible for the CDC discount.
