Brownlow Utilities has been working with these agreements since its inception and is well experienced in the acquisition and management of CCAs. Now that the program has been reopened to new applicants until September 2020, contact our CCA team to see if your organization is justified. A novelty target is used when the site produces two or more products or product groups with very different energy intensities, or if the current company and product mix have changed since the base year (in this case, each group of products or products has a defined kWh/tonne) The Ministry of Energy and Climate Change and industrial sectors have negotiated energy efficiency targets for each sector – the industry`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 objectives applicable to the different target units may differ from the sector`s obligation. Newcomers in the new schemes are expected to adopt the target profile for the sector, but this may vary depending on the application of the objective test. This test will be adjusted if the most recent performance indicates that the improvement target has already been achieved. This is in line with BEIS` policy objective for the CCA system, which states that the programme provides for a reduction in the climate change tax (CDC) in exchange for ambitious energy efficiency targets. 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. There are two types of CCAs: basic agreements and underlying agreements. A Climate Change Agreement (CCA) is a voluntary agreement that sets targets for energy efficiency and reducing carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions. They are part of a package of measures taken by the UK government to address the challenges of climate change while helping the sector remain competitive on the international stage. Operators who commit to the scheme are entitled to a discount on the climate change tax levy (CDC), which is included on their energy bills. See the contact list of the interprofessional organization and the framework agreements for the different branches. How climate change agreements (CCA) work, which is eligible and which inter-professional organizations have a CCA. There are reduced rates if you are already in the agreement on climate change.
