    • Energy efficiency tax review: What the proposed changes will mean for business Energy efficiency tax review: What the proposed changes will mean for business Arjan Geveke, Assistant Director Energy Policy BIS; David Oliver, Policy expert, Inenco Group; Helen Wheeler, Inenco Group Recorded: Oct 29 2015 11:00 am UTC 59 mins
    • The latest government consultation on energy efficiency taxes is now open: Treasury, BIS (Department for Business Innovation & Skills) and DECC (Department of Energy & Climate Change) are working together to consult on and review the existing energy efficiency tax framework, which could streamline taxes and reduce the administrative burden on businesses.

      The government plans – ‘Reforming the business energy efficiency tax landscape’ – is aiming to simplify energy tax and reporting schemes, and improve the effectiveness of policy in realising cost-effective energy and carbon savings. The proposals on the table are:

      Scrapping the CRC and creating one CCL-type consumption tax for businesses

      Creating one single reporting framework, bringing together elements of the different schemes that businesses currently comply with into one ESOS-style scheme

      Potentially introducing new financial incentives to encourage businesses to invest in energy efficiency measures

      Between now and November 9th businesses are being invited to share their views and opinions on proposed changes to the business energy efficiency tax landscape to help shape its reform.

      What do the changes mean for businesses? Who will be the winners and the losers? How can businesses get involved?

      Join BIS and energy experts Inenco Group for a webinar on the changes proposed, the impact on business and why you should get involved.

      Amongst other things, you’ll gain:

      An improved understanding of the review

      An understanding on how the changes proposed will impact your business

      Advice on how to get involved

    • Waste strategy: a positive force for the UK's energy infrastructure development? Waste strategy: a positive force for the UK's energy infrastructure development? David Massingham, Public Affairs Director, Covanta Energy Recorded: Apr 20 2012 10:00 am UTC 58 mins
    • Developments in the Waste Strategy have been long awaited and much debated. At best they could unlock some of the barriers to both waste and energy infrastructure development - at worst they could result in recourse to more debate, and a loss of vital inward investment.

      While the financial climate remains difficult, it's no surprise that many of those local authorities who are still to put residual waste solutions in place have had to take a step back to reconsider their options. But the UK cannot afford a protracted period of reconsideration if we are to deliver the required waste and energy capacity to meet targets and actual need. While last year's announcements proved to be a damp squib, early indicators suggest that these new changes will have a positive impact.

      Government energy policy has already identified EfW as one of a handful of technologies that are critical to delivering energy security and low carbon objectives. It is our belief, however, that if we are to deliver the full potential of EfW, we are going to need to exploit resources beyond the municipal sector, especially the energy value of residual Commercial & Industrial (C&I) waste.

      Joining up the dots of all of these combined waste and energy considerations, and taking into account planning and localism, is an enormous challenge - for government and for those working within the sector.

      Covanta is the largest Energy-from-Waste provider in the world, operating 46 plants worldwide. The company has more than 25 years' experience and treats over 18 million tonnes or residual waste annually from which it derives more than 9 million megawatt hours of sustainable energy.

      Covanta is making a considerable investment into the UK and Irish Energy-from-Waste markets, making up to 2 million tonnes of EfW capacity available over the next five years. Through this programme Covanta will be investing in communities, through job creation and community partnerships.
