A new tax on
energy use in industry, commerce, agriculture and the public sector,
the Climate Change Levy, is expected to be introduced in April 2001.
Air Systems, in partnership with Motherwell & District Chamber Of
Commerce, sponsored and organised a seminar on the above important
issue on 14th September 2000 at Fir Park Stadium, Motherwell.
seminar aimed to explain how the levy affects industries and commerce
since some organisations will be eligible for a discount in the
rate of levy and some energy sources or uses of energy will be exempt
from the levy.
It was also
an objective of the seminar to clarify the Enhanced Capital Allowances
Scheme for Energy Efficient Plant and Machinery and to provide delegates
with practical advice and solutions to reduce their energy costs
whilst improving the environmental performance.
Mr Alf Young,
Deputy Editor of The Herald, chaired the seminar. Speakers from
Scottish Power, The Scottish Executive, Energy Efficiency Best Practice
Programme and Devro-Teepak gave comprehensive presentations. An
open forum followed and provided answers to questions and concerns
raised by delegates.
