What about Brexit and EII?

What about Brexit and EII?

The UK target to reduce emissions by 80% is enshrined in UK law, under the Climate Change Act of 2008.

The Exemption for EII is designed to maintain the competitiveness of UK manufacturing within the global marketplace during the transformation of the energy market that will be required to deliver that 80% reduction.

This should not be affected by whatever terms are agreed between the UK and the EU for our departure from the EU.

However, in terms of the legislation required for the transformation of FITS compensation to exemption, this will require some space in the parliamentary schedule between now and March 2019.  Here at the Hub, we think there is a chance that this could be delayed, depending on how much time Parliament spends on Brexit matters between now and then.
