Climate Change Agreements (CCA)
What are Climate Change Agreements?
The UK government introduced Climate Change Agreements (CCAs) to encourage energy intensive industries to establish energy efficiency measures as part of government policy to reduce energy use and CO2 emissions.
CCAs provide companies with a significant financial incentive with a discount on the Climate Change Levy (CCL) which is applied on electricity, gas, propane and coal.
How does my company participate in a CCA?
To retain the financial benefit, your company must achieve an energy saving target set for a two-year period. Participation in a CCA is voluntary, but the strong financial incentives mean most sites that can have a CCA apply for one.
We are now in the second cycle of CCAs, which run until 2023. From 1 April 2020 Climate Change Agreements (CCAs) allow eligible energy intensive businesses to receive a discount of up to 93% on CCL charges applied to electricity, and 78% applied to natural gas. The main rates of CCL are charged on energy supplied to an end user.
