star this property answer text <p>Tackling climate change is a top priority for the Department. We were the first major economy to legislate for a net zero target and have already made great progress towards it. Since 1990 we have reduced emissions by 42% while growing our economy by 72%.</p><p>The government’s Clean Growth Strategy and Industrial Strategy set out strong frameworks to deliver the target in a way that maximises the economic benefits of our transition to net zero. This includes building on our strengths in electric vehicles and offshore wind. In 2018, 1 in 5 battery electric cars sold in Europe were built in the UK[1] and we are spending nearly £1.5 billion out to 2021 to support the take-up of ultra low emission vehicles. The UK has the largest offshore wind capacity in the world, with 34% of global capacity[2]. At the latest contracts for difference allocation round, 12 renewable electricity projects won contracts at record low costs. The auction has delivered enough energy to power 7.2m homes by 2025.</p><p>On 15 October, the Government published its response to the CCC’s latest annual Progress Report, setting out the suite of recent announcements made in support of our net zero target, and describing further actions that the Government will take to deliver net zero and meet our carbon budgets. These include plans for the publication in 2020 of an Energy White Paper, a Transport Decarbonisation Plan and a Heat Roadmap.</p><p> </p><p>[1] <strong>OLEV (2019) fast facts briefing; ONS (2019) Low carbon and renewable energy economy final estimates: <a href="https://www.ons.gov.uk/economy/environmentalaccounts/datasets/lowcarbonandrenewableenergyeconomyfirstestimatesdataset" target="_blank">https://www.ons.gov.uk/economy/environmentalaccounts/datasets/lowcarbonandrenewableenergyeconomyfirstestimatesdataset</a> (Updated 19/07/2019 Nelli Vanninen)</strong></p><p> </p><p>[2] <strong>GWEC (2018), Global Wind report 2018,</strong> <strong><a href="https://gwec.net/global-wind-report-2018/" target="_blank">https://gwec.net/global-wind-report-2018/</a>, (Updated 16/07/2019 Nelli Vanninen) </strong> last updated 07 May 2019 CED briefings</p><p> </p>

star this property answer text <p>Zero emission motorists in Clacton can benefit from grants under the Electric Vehicle Homecharge Scheme and Work Place Chargepoint Schemes and Tendring District Council can apply for funding under the On-street Residential Charging scheme.</p><p>We want to encourage private sector investment to build and operate a self-sustaining public network that is affordable, reliable and accessible.</p><p>Government funding, alongside private sector investment, has supported the installation of more than 22,500 places to charge, including 2,100 rapid devices– creating one of the largest networks in Europe. In August the Secretary of State announced that funding for this year’s on street residential charging scheme, which offers grants to local authorities to support investment at a local level, would be doubled from £2.5 to £5 million. Highways England has also committed £15m to ensure there are chargepoints (rapid where possible) every 20 miles on 95% of the Strategic Road Network by 2020.</p><p>This is in addition to the £400m Chargepoint Infrastructure Investment Fund , with the first tranche of funding launched in September 2019.</p><p> </p>

star this property answer text <p>The UK is the G20 leader in reducing the carbon intensity of its economy, and is using a range of policy levers – including spending and taxes – to support the UK’s transition to a low-carbon economy.</p><p> </p><p>The Clean Growth Strategy set out significant investment by the Government in decarbonisation including £2.5 billion to support low carbon innovation from 2015-2021, £4.5bn to support development of renewable and low carbon heating through the Renewable Heat Incentive and £1 billion to support the uptake of ultra-low emissions vehicles. In addition, government has supported the deployment of renewable electricity projects, with annual consumer support now reaching over £10bn.</p><p> </p><p>HMT has accepted the Committee on Climate Change’s (CCC) recommendation to conduct a review into the costs and benefits of transitioning to a net zero economy. The Review will consider how to achieve this transition in a way that works for households, businesses and public finances.</p><p> </p><p>Carbon pricing has helped to drive down UK emissions, in particular from the power sector, and will continue to play an important role to help meet the UK’s legally binding carbon reduction commitments, which are unaffected by leaving the EU.</p><p> </p><p>The government is considering long-term options for carbon pricing including the possibility of linking a UK greenhouse gas emissions trading system with the EU ETS. As announced at Budget 2018, in the event the UK leaves the EU without a deal, the Carbon Emissions Tax would be introduced.</p>

star this property answer text <p>Government expects network companies to work with Ofgem, the independent regulator, to ensure a settlement for the upcoming set of energy network price controls which is fair to investors and consumers, including in relation to Government’s net zero and clean growth ambitions. Network regulation is a matter for Ofgem. By law, Government has no role in this process.</p><p> </p><p>Ofgem has recently taken steps in this regard. In August 2019 Ofgem published an open letter, asking network companies across all sectors to clearly propose and evidence how their business plans for the next price controls are able to adapt to support delivery of the net zero target. Final business plans for electricity transmission will be submitted to Ofgem in December, with determinations to be made by the regulator in 2020 ahead of those new price controls starting in April 2021.</p><p> </p><p>Ofgem has also published an open letter consultation on the proposed framework for the next electricity distribution price control starting two years later in April 2023. In this letter Ofgem states it is considering including a more direct link between network company revenues and the achievement of outcomes outside the delivery of traditional network services, for example the decarbonisation of transport and/or heat. Ofgem expects to confirm its decision on the framework that will apply in December, with further detailed consultation of key regulatory policy areas and approaches, including decarbonisation, scheduled for 2020.</p>
