Update and future timeplan
You will already know that the current CCA scheme ends on 31st March 2013. It has been very successful in delivering energy and carbon emission reduction as part of the EU carbon reduction obligations for 2020 and 2050. So despite the current economic circumstances, H M Treasury is prepared to continue to pay back Climate Change Levy rebate, for achievement of further target hitting carbon reduction.
A new CCA scheme has been under negotiation since late 2011, and is scheduled for introduction on 1st April 2013. The initial DECC proposed targets for the ten years 2012- 2023 have been rejected by FSDF, and a counter proposal has to be presented, with full justification, by 14th September. Two requests for information will be sent to all members shortly:
1. A data request to support the counter proposal will go to all CCA members during week ending 3rd August. We need this back by end August latest please, please please turn it round as soon as you can – thanks.
2. A Milestone 4 data check will go out on 10th August to be back at the beginning of September. This is to check that the locations, size of facilties to be included, and most importantly, any additions or deletions of space are to be made.
New entrants are also being received to be initially registered by 17th August. We have contacted all those companies that failed to join in September 2009, to ensure that we attract the whole stand alone temperature controlled facilities sector, and we will be visiting those to help ensure a clean application.
The autumn will be very busy so every assistance in turning round requests for information will be gratefully appreciated. Have a great summer!
