March's Energy Advice round up

March’s latest low carbon insights 

It’s been an extraordinary month. And, like all organisations we’re working hard to adapt to the daily challenges that COVID-19 has brought to our shores and beyond.

But, we are galvanised and ready to carry on doing what we do best. And in that spirit – here is the latest news and analysis from our Energy Advice Hub – which is, as usual, packed with advice on a range of compliance and energy challenges.

In case you missed them, our latest insights are here:

Our budget analysis – the green takeaways

The budget rightly focused on plans to lessen the impact of coronavirus on the UK economy. But there were plenty of green announcements too – were they enough to get us on track for net zero?

Petrol and diesel ban – the challenges ahead

A ban on the sale of new petrol and diesel vehicles comes into force in 2035. But what are the problems with the new policy? Here’s our analysis.

Onshore wind is back in favour

Details of the next round of the Contracts for Difference scheme were revealed in March. The scheme will be open to onshore wind, effectively ending the government’s opposition to this renewable technology. 

New digital tool for Streamlined Energy and Carbon Reporting

The government has launched a new tool to help companies report their energy and carbon data digitally when filing accounts with Companies House.
