British Industry Supercharger: consultation on capacity market exemption and government response to the 2022 review of the energy intensive industries exemption scheme (Ells).

This consultation closes at

This consultation addresses 2 of the 3 elements of the package of measures announced as part of the British Industry Supercharger (BIS) for Energy Intensive Industries (EIIs).

The package of measures includes an increase from 85% to 100% relief through the Exemption Scheme from the costs of the renewable levies:

  • a 100% indirect exemption from Capacity Market charges
  • relief from eligible network charging costs through an EII Network Charging Cost Compensation Scheme

The consultation seeks feedback on the delivery of an exemption from Capacity Market charges for EIIs and provides the government’s response to the consultation on the EII Exemption Scheme carried out in 2022. The EII Network Charging Cost Compensation Scheme will be the subject of a future consultation which will be published in June 2023.

We are seeking views from a wide range of audiences, including energy intensive industries (whether currently benefitting or not from the existing Exemption Scheme), energy suppliers, capacity providers, other electricity consumers, trade bodies, consumer associations, the devolved administrations, and other interested parties.
