Government recognises that the increase in delivered electricity prices caused through the recovery of environmental levies on industrial energy consumers’ bills threatens to reduce the competitiveness of UK businesses in international markets.
This particularly impacts our most energy intensive industries.
To address this, a new exemption scheme from April 2018 provides relief to industries whose global competitiveness is most at risk. Eligible businesses may apply for a partial exemption from the costs of funding the Contracts for Difference and Renewables Obligation. Successful applicants are also, automatically, eligible for relief from Feed-In-Tariff costs.
But does this go far enough?
Government has recently consulted on widening the scheme - how do we strike the balance between supporting British industry and avoiding a heavy financial burden on those who are not eligible for the exemptions?
And how does this tie into policy making for Brexit, British exports and the wider Industrial Strategy?
Join our webinar to hear directly from Arjan Geveke, the Associate Director of Energy Policy (Productivity Team) at the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy as he outlines government's understanding of what industrial energy consumers need and how the policymakers plan to support these sectors.
With response from NSG Pilkington - a major glass manufacturer affected by these issues and insight on market trends and consumer activity from Inspired Energy, this promises to be a lively and highly informative discussion.

This expert panel will take a candid look at the importance of robust risk management at this stage of the market cycle. Looking back, there have been important milestones in the evolution of risk management from the early days of “Phase I or no Phase I?” decisions based solely on loan size. Other areas—like the alignment of the appraisal function and environmental risk management function—are still evolving. As the market enters a phases of moderating property values, lenders should be turning a close eye on their risk management practices. The impact an environmental issue may have on a property’s value is more significant as prices decline. Risk managers who are being challenged to make a case for tighter underwriting will learn valuable ammo for explaining why ERM is more important than ever. Attendees will also learn more about the future direction of regulatory guidance to better reflect budding industry best practices.

Following an announcement by BEIS on what government have done since the publication of the Helm Review, join us to hear from BEIS themselves on current policy thinking around the Cost of Energy.
What is government doing to tackle energy costs in the non-domestic sector?
Are we really supporting British business, when rising costs of production impacts our global competitiveness?
Most of the cost rises are coming from non-commodity charges. Is this an essential spend, delivering critical infrastructure with the costs applied fairly to all users, or are the networks reaping benefits at the expense of the consumer?
And how can we ensure we get the best price when we go to market?
Just 29% of UK employees work for firms that operate flexible working policies for all employees according to recent research commissioned by TeleWare.
This highlights the stark differences in how firms are creating workforces who can work flexibly in an increasingly mobile environment. One thing is certain, tools that enable employees to work wherever and whenever they want to are here to stay, but how firms deploy them could be the difference between success or failure.
Join us in the latest webinar in our mobility and productivity programme where we will share exclusive insight into mobile and flexible working practices.
Join our panel of experts to find out:
•The impact on businesses who fail to deliver changing flexible working expectations
•The technological advancements that are helping firms operate flexibly
•The benefits and the pitfalls of a more mobility enabled workforce
•The barriers to successful adoption and how you can overcome them.
