Energy Intensive Industries: Levy Exemptions and Brexit Impacts

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.

  • Grid Balancing and Energy Services - the key to recovering lost revenue. Recorded: May 21 2020 55 mins
    Mark Davis, Lisa McMullan & Michael St. Leger - GridBeyond
    Knowledge of system balancing is becoming increasingly important for energy managers who are serious about reducing costs and engaging with network flexibility to support a smart, green grid.

    In this webinar we will share a wealth of knowledge on innovative ways Industrial, Commercial and Public Sector customers can rescue some lost revenues post-lockdown by optimising participation in balancing services, price optimisation and energy optimisation strategies.

    Like all ICON webinars, this will of course be education focused, and provide an overview of the options and how they all work
  • Futureproofing for Electric Vehicles: the interoperability challenge Recorded: May 6 2020 60 mins
    Jeremy Yapp
    The stark reduction in air pollution over recent weeks due to the coronavirus lockdown has shown just how much local transport by internal combustion engines is contributing to poor air quality.

    However the shift to low emission vehicles is far from straightforward.

    Businesses and local authorities need confidence that the public charge points they install will continue to provide value for years to come, and that it will work as part of a complex system of multiple vehicle types, operators and consumer behaviours. Private, domestic charging needs to work as part of the home’s energy management system within a resilient electricity system. But what support is there to help understand the options? And where can you go for technical advice?

    Jeremy Yapp, Head of Flexible Energy Systems at BEAMA helps unmask some of the mystery in this webinar on Futureproofing for Electric Vehicles: the Interoperability Challenge.
  • Change towards a sustainable future (even for those who aren't keen) Recorded: Apr 28 2020 44 mins
    Sarah Divall, Hubbub
    The question of how to encourage behaviour change is absolutely key to the success of any Environmental or Sustainability professional.

    Whilst we are now in a period where everything is changing, very rapidly, maintaining the importance of sustainability in business can be a real challenge.

    With years of experience in doing just that, Sarah Divall from Sustainable Change Hub, Hubbub shares her insights on change management and how to keep sustainability as top topic on the Boardroom table.
  • Where's the Market? A guide to Wholesale Energy Prices Recorded: Jul 15 2019 61 mins
    Tim Partridge (DB Group (Europe) Ltd.), Georgina Penfold (ICON)
    We all know the energy markets are volatile, but as we use the quieter summer months to refresh and update our procurement strategy ahead of the busy winter period, what should we be aware of?

    Will the stricken oil tanker in the Gulf of Oman create movement in the oil markets? Will the long-term weather forecast have a chilling effect on winter power prices?

    Tune into this webinar, and we'll explain the bulls and bears in the markets right now, then explain how the markets work as we watch the Market Making Obligation trades come in at 10:30.

    Don't know what that means? Join us and you soon will.

    This webinar is offered by DB Group to help inform and update ICON members and other business energy consumers; we're very sorry but other brokers will be asked not to dial in on this occasion
  • Costs and Competition in the non-domestic Energy Sector Recorded: Nov 21 2018 49 mins
    Arjan Geveke (BEIS), hosted by Georgina Penfold (icon)
    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?
