ESOS compliance deadline still Saturday 5 December 2015

The following email has been circulated today by the Energy Savings Opportunity Scheme (ESOS) Team, part of National Trading and Regulatory Services (NTRS), on behalf of the Environment Agency:

We have been asked by Government to circulate the following message to participants in the CRC Energy Efficiency Scheme, the Climate Change Agreements scheme and the Energy Savings Opportunity Scheme.

Today, the Government announced its intention to review the business energy tax landscape to consider approaches to simplify and improve the effectiveness of the regime. The review will include the Climate Change Levy, CRC Energy Efficiency Scheme and Climate Change Agreements.

The Government has stated that it will launch a formal public consultation in the autumn.

Pending any changes that the Government makes, participants are still responsible for meeting their responsibilities under all schemes that they currently qualify for. Administration of these schemes will continue as at present. For the purposes of the Energy Savings Opportunity Scheme the deadline for compliance for the first period remains as set out in law, 5 December 2015.

For further information about the review, you should contact: public.enquiries@hmtreasury.gsi.gov.uk
