Eligible companies are now able to apply for compensation. Scheme guidance and application forms were published on 19 January 2016 and details can be found on the GOV.UK website at: <a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/renewables-obligation-and-small-scale-feed-in-tariffs-apply-for-compensation" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/renewables-obligation-and-small-scale-feed-in-tariffs-apply-for-compensation</a>. We continue to be in dialogue with the EU Commission on the second element of our State Aid Application to compensate competitors of eligible Electricity Intensive Industries (EII) to ensure they do not face competitive distortions. Compensation paid under the EII scheme is in addition to the £148 million of support the Government has already given to EIIs to mitigate the impact of climate policy.</p><p><strong></strong></p>

star this property answer text <p>The Government is committed to achieving an 80% reduction in UK emissions by 2050. But we need to cut carbon whilst also cutting costs to the consumer and to the taxpayer.</p><br /><p>The Green Deal market framework has not been affected by the decision not to invest further public funds into the Green Deal Finance Company. Therefore, subject to Green Deal providers sourcing their own finance streams or a new finance provider entering the market, Green Deal providers may still write Green Deal plans and offer Green Deal finance to consumers.</p><br /><p>The changes to tax exemptions for low carbon cars in the Company Car Taxation system came into force in 2015-16. To date we have not seen any effect in take up of such vehicles as a result of these tax changes.</p><br /><p>Our assessment of the impact of the changes we are making to renewable electricity support are set out in the impact assessment published alongside each of the changes to renewables support which are available on <a href="http://www.gov.uk/decc" target="_blank">www.gov.uk/decc</a>.</p><br /><p>Lastly, the privatisation of the GIB will allow the company to increase its investments in the UK green economy. It will be able to raise more capital free from being on the Government balance sheet. It will also be free from State Aid restrictions on the green investments it can make.</p>
