Energy Intensive Industry (EII) Exemption
Is my business eligible for an exemption from CFD, RO and FIT?
What happens next?
*Companies based in Northern Ireland
The Contracts for Difference (CFD), Renewable Obligation (RO) and Small-Scale Feed in tariff (FIT) exemptions do not apply to Northern Ireland. Companies based solely in Northern Ireland can currently apply for RO. compensation and should refer to the compensation scheme. Companies with sites in both Great Britain and Northern Ireland should refer to GOV.UK for further guidance.
Why have Energy Intensive Industry Exemptions been introduced?
The UK Government is committed to reducing greenhouse gas emissions by at least 80% by 2050. This requires a transformation of the UK economy, including the energy market, while keeping energy costs down for business and consumers, and maintaining competitiveness.
