Climate Change Agreements Biennial Progress Report

The figures in this report use information provided by operators. Our report does not take into account the extent to which emission changes are due to participation in the CCA system or other factors. A number of factors, including trade incentives, can affect participants` energy consumption and emissions. We know the SEC for the base year and target period. Therefore, we can calculate the energy consumption and emissions that would have occurred in the base year if the flow had been the same as for the target period. The use of this adjusted information takes into account changes in throughput since the base year. It also compensates target units that were not in the scheme during the two years tp3. There is a better assessment of changes in energy efficiency. This report focuses only on the energy consumption subject to a CCA that may not be the total energy consumed in the facilities. We have taken up data from operator reports that have been sent to us until May 1, 2019 and redemption fees received until July 1, 2019. Subsequent corrections or payments are not included in this report.

The data used is provided by participating operators responsible for the quality of their bids. The EU inventory is a national inventory based on emissions reported under the EU Climate Monitoring Mechanism. At the same time, the European Environment Agency publishes a more detailed report on emissions trends and forecasts each autumn. Operators of all target units of the CCA scheme as of December 31, 2018 had to declare their benefit. It was against their goals for the third period. They had until May 1, 2019 to come forward. These reports and accompanying open data tables data.gov.uk provide an overview of the evolution of sectors and operators as part of their CCA objectives. The Climate Change Mechanism Regulation is the relevant framework until 1 January 2021, but its main reporting provisions continue to apply to reports for the years 2019 and 2020, which take place in 2021 and 2022 respectively. From there, it will be repealed and replaced by the Energy Union Governance and Climate Policy Regulation. We applied the corrections to the various target units and adjusted the bank surplus and repurchase fees as required. However, according to our initial intentions, data from previous reports remain unchanged and have not been updated to reflect subsequent corrections. For TP3 and TP4, we are simplifying the correction process to reduce the administrative burden of these increasingly complex changes.

This publication is www.gov.uk/government/publications/climate-change-agreements-cca-biennial-report/climate-change-agreements-biennial-progress-report-2017-and-2018 While this approach is easy to calculate, it does not compensate for any changes in throughput that may have occurred relative to the base year. It is also not corrected for target units that have partially joined the system and have less than two years of data for the target period. Operators of 23 target units have notified and terminated their contracts. 9 others were not reported, but were still in the scheme. We do not have data for these 32 target units. Each framework agreement sets a target for sectoral engagement for each target period relative to the reference year.
