Drax and Infinis launch judicial review over CCL exemption consultation


 

The Drax Group and Infinis Energy have jointly begun proceedings for a judicial review of the notice period for the removal of the Climate Change Levy (CCL) exemption for electricity generated from renewables. The review, announced on Wednesday 2 September, was launched on the basis that the exemption was removed without the application of an appropriate notice period. Chancellor George Osborne announced the measure in the Summer Budget on 8 July with a notice period of 24 days. The companies are asking the court to consider “a reasonable notice period for the withdrawal of such financial support.”
