Climate Change Agreement deadline reminder

The deadline for applications for the Climate Change Agreement (CCA) is fast approaching and prospective or existing clients are advised to get in touch now.

After a two-month extension was granted by the UK government, companies eligible to apply for the scheme can now do so up until 30 November this year.

However, most trade associations require applications to arrive before the end of October to enable them to be vetted and processed in a timely fashion.

First established in 2001, the CCA incentivises energy and carbon savings through setting energy-efficiency targets whilst also helping to reduce energy costs in sectors with energy-intensive processes by providing a significant discount to Climate Change Levy (CCL)

The current targets provide the basis on which organisations can make improvements to the energy-efficiency of facilities included in agreements over an eight-year period, ensuring their contribution to UK-wide goals, in return for savings worth nearly £300m annually.

We are currently working on applications for existing customers and would welcome approaches from other companies who need guidance in this area or are interested in utilising our expertise in energy procurement, invoice validation and compliance and legislation.
