Climate Change Agreements (CCAs)


Climate Change Agreements (CCAs)

+ + + + +


What are CCAs?

Climate Change Agreements (CCAs) are voluntary agreements made between UK industry and the Environment Agency to reduce energy use and carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions.

In return, operators receive a discount on the Climate Change Levy (CCL), a tax added to electricity and fuel bills. The Environment Agency administers the CCA scheme on behalf of the whole of the UK.

CCAs have eligibility criteria and set ambitious targets for successful applicants for improving energy efficiency. It is therefore critical to have a strategy in place for accomplishing targets before making an application.

Zenergi is here to help you navigate the often complex legislation to achieve a compliant and successful outcome which very often reduces budget pressures.

What is the risk of non-compliance?

Financial penalties can be levied for non-compliance, including late reporting, incorrect information, or failure to update any change of circumstances. There is usually a timeframe of 28 days to rectify any issues. Penalties can be up to 10% of the value of the CCA discount received.
