The UK government has introduced a scheme to help Energy Intensive Industries (EII’s) in the UK compete with the lower energy costs of some of their EU counterparts.
The legislation means that EII’s are exempt from up to 85% of the policy costs associated with generating electricity from renewable sources which include Contracts for Difference (CfD), Renewable Obligation (RO) and Small-Scale Feed in tariff (FiT).
The Department of Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) expects the measures to benefit over 130 heavy users, saving them around £100m a year in energy costs.
In order to be eligible for the exemptions, businesses will need to demonstrate that a specific site is classed as an EII.
This is based on two main criteria:
