  1. NI 186 Briefing Bruce Pittingale CAN – East Secretariat 05602 391 784 bruce.pittingale@btinternet.com

  2. Percentage reduction of the per capita CO2 emissions in the Local Authority Area: The indicator being assessed will comprise of an annual amount of end user CO2 emissions across an agreed set of sectors (housing, road transport and business) measured as a percentage reduction (or increase) of the per capita CO2 emission from the 2005 baseline year. NI 186 definition

  3. NI 186 a Priority Target • Green Areas show where only NI 186 is priority of the three environmental indicators • Most of Eastern Region, although Essex have since withdrawn • What are targets?

  4. Omits • EU Emissions trading scheme • Motorway traffic • Flying • Shipping and the offshore industry • Land Use, Land Use Change and Forestry Includes • Everything else • Homes • Business • Public Sector

  5. Targets set 31st March 2009 • Set by LAA county wide partnerships • Year on year reductions per capita • First set of targets until 2011 • Results provided by Defra annually • Local and Regional CO2 Emissions Estimates for 2005-2006 • Issued annually in the Autumn

  6. Your targets

  7. Who provided figures?

  8. Deeper Definition • Action by local authorities is likely to be critical to the achievement of Government’s climate change objectives. • Local authorities are uniquely placed to provide vision and leadership to local communities by raising awareness and to influence behaviours. • through their powers and responsibilities (housing, planning, local transport and powers to promote well-being) • by working with their Local Strategic Partnership they can have significant influence over emissions

  9. How the target is broken down • Split into three sectors • National Interventions • Providing a cleaner/ greener infrastructure • National with Local Interventions • Providing a better public transport infrastructure • Local Interventions • Home energy efficiency • Reducing school runs • Improving water usage • Travel plans • Local food purchasing • Micro renewable energy solutions • Shall I go on?

  10. Basis of three tier system

  11. Technical Guidance • 14 page document provided by BERR • Key Phrases used • Setting and monitoring the achievement of comparable targets is an important driver • a consistent evidence base is required • enable local authorities and other relevant organisations to prioritise and act effectively • energy meter readings and fuel sales across the UK are collected and AEA Energy & Environment converts this data into carbon emissions for each LA • This will reduce the current reporting burden on LAs, allowing them to focus their efforts on actions to reduce CO2 emissions

  12. So these targets • What do they mean to us • Real figures coming up, from a DC near you • Don’t forget the clock is ticking • LAA target for three years • Year 1 – 3.67% from baseline figure (9.6 tonnes) • Year 2 – 7.33% from baseline figure (9.6 tonnes) • Year 3 – 11.0% from baseline figure (9.6 tonnes) • Take Year 1 only

  13. Breakdown of target Breakdown of National targets Assumed Year 1 Year 2 Year 3 Target from LAA 3.67% 7.33% 11.00% National only 25% 0.92% 1.83% 2.75% National and Local 50% 1.84% 3.67% 5.50% Local only 25% 0.92% 1.83% 2.75% Full local section 2.02% 4.03% 6.05% National and local split 40/60 in favour of local delivery

  14. Actual targets • Per Capita baseline - 9.6 tonnes • Target local savings - 2.02% • Per Capita savings - 0.195 tonnes • Population - 130,130 • Total savings required - 25,235 tonnes • Equates to:- • 31,902 top up loft insulations, or • 16,386 cavity wall insulations, or • 162,805 low energy lamps installed • And that is just Year 1, this then needs to be repeated in each of the next two years

  15. Example for one tonne reduction • In our example over three years this equates to a one tonne per person reduction • This can be shown graphically by the spreadsheets I have developed • Please bear with me and take a look at one way of achieving this • There are many ways to do this • This is why you need a strategic approach

  16. Cambridgeshire Per Capita My question is one tonne in Cambridge City, will that be as achievable in the other areas?

  17. Energy Measures report • This is essential reading, can be found at http://www.berr.gov.uk/files/file41260.pdf • Action by local authorities is critical to the achievements of the Government’s climate change and energy objectives • Local authorities are uniquely placed to • act on climate change mitigation • Alleviate fuel poverty • They can take action on their own estates and housing stock • Also play a key role in motivating the wider community to take action

  18. Energy Measures Report headlines • Ideas for Action • A good practice strategic approach • Community Leadership • Own estate and operations • Planning • Transport • Schools and Education • Energy Advice • Climate Change Adaptation

  19. Reporting • Annually the Local Strategic Partnership is going to provide a report on what has been carried out to inform the LAA • First report generally thought to be the end of September 2009 for the first year • This will be fed back into the CAA process • the Audit Commission will need to see individual LA’s actions during the inspection process

  20. Final thoughts • Now you can see what is necessary • Real action plans • Real works carried out • Measured by someone else (different role for LA’s) • Using nationally available data and an established methodology as a basis for the estimates ensures consistency between the figures reported • BERR/ DECC encourages local authorities to seek out local data. • This is likely to improve their understanding of the local situation, and could ultimately help to improve the quality of the published estimates. • How are you planning to do yours?
