Umbrella Climate Change Agreement

The data center sector and the sawmill sector have been complemented by the framework agreements on climate change. In return for the commitment to the sector`s energy efficiency target (which has yet to be confirmed for the Objective 5 period), new entrants will benefit from a climate change tax (CCL) rebate, which will be levied on their energy bills. The percentage reduction for CCA owners is currently 92% for electricity, 81% for natural gas, 77% for LPG and 81% for other taxable products. Each CCA umbrella agreement has specific and often complex admission criteria, this is something that can clear your eyes to ensure that you don`t waste your time applying for something you might not be eligible for. It is a voluntary scheme in which eligible sectors that meet ambitious energy efficiency or emission reduction targets benefit from a 90% climate change tax rebate for electricity consumption and 65% for other fuels. CCMs have a two-phase structure, with umbrella agreements and sole proprietorships (underlying agreements). Each agreement sets objectives, defines the obligations of all contracting parties and the necessary administrative procedures. The objectives are negotiated between the sectoral federations and the government, but it is the responsibility of the sectoral associations to distribute the agreed objective among their members. There are currently more than 50 sectors that have negotiated and implemented framework agreements. Eyebright is happy to advise you if your industry has a framework contract. CACs are voluntary agreements which grant 53 eligible interbranch organisations a discount on CCL charges for electricity and fuel, provided that they achieve their objectives during the period under review. Organisations and operators which are part of an eligible interbranch organisation and which have the CSF may benefit from CCL rebates for: Climate Change Agreement (CSF) energy efficiency targets for the sectors.

Each of the 53 eligible interbranch organisations has either framework agreements or underlying agreements. Inter-trade agreements are negotiated between inter-branch organisations and the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (formerly DECC). The underlying agreements are owned by sites or groups of sites belonging to an organisation or operator and are managed by interbranch organisations. The current CCA program was launched on April 1, 2013. The 2011 budget announced that the scheme would continue until 2023 and that the 51 existing sectors would continue to benefit from the CCA scheme and the climate tax rebate. It was also announced that the climate tax rebate on electricity for CCA participants would increase to 90% from April 2013. Eligible industries can enter into Climate Change Agreements (CCAS) with the Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC). In order to benefit from these agreements, a sector would either have to carry out activities listed in the Pollution Prevention and Reduction (PPC) regulations or be considered an energy-intensive industry meeting certain energy intensity criteria.

Currently, all CCAs are open to new applications, but this is expected to change on November 30, 2020. Eyebright is happy to explain the relevant dates of your CCA ridge agreement. eyebright manages all aspects of our client`s climate change agreement and ensures that all necessary reporting obligations are met, while administering the relevant energy suppliers, to ensure that all relevant HMRC CCL discount forms are submitted and discounts are applied. The percentage reduction for CCS holders will change over time, the percentage variations are presented below: There are costs related to the application process and this changes from sector to sector and there are different pricing structures in each sector…
