ENDS (Environmental Data Services);Apr2012, Issue 447, p35
The article discusses the British government proposals to alter climate change agreement (CCA) rules which may weaken biomass heat incentive. The rules have been signed between the government and the industrial sectors which would set carbon or energy reduction goals in return for climate change levy exemptions. Some of the significant proposals in the CCA rules are outlined that include emissions factors, targets and charges.
