With so many upcoming changes across the energy landscape, businesses need to be prepared. Next year will see the introduction of the Energy Intensive Industry (EII) exemption, which is great news for exempt businesses, but those that aren't eligible will have to absorb the extra costs - which is expected to raise RO and FiT costs by around 6% for each business. Also, the Climate Change Levy (CCL) tax is due to increase by 46% when the Carbon Reduction Commitment (CRC) is abolished in 2019. How can you prepare for these cost increases?
