Empowering the Future: UK Government Unveils British Industry Supercharger for Glass Manufacturing

In a decisive move toward a greener future, the UK government has introduced the British Industry Supercharger, a groundbreaking initiative tailored to fortify energy-intensive sectors, including glass manufacturing. This comprehensive program is meticulously crafted to enhance the competitiveness of British industries by addressing crucial aspects of the energy system, aligning them with global standards and reducing electricity costs. For the UK glass industry, this signifies a pivotal stride toward decarbonization and sustainable progress.

Driving Sustainability: Key Components of the Supercharger

Under the umbrella of the British Industry Supercharger, three strategic measures have been introduced, each strategically designed to foster competitiveness and sustainability within the industrial sector:

1. Enhanced Energy-Intensive Industries Renewable Levy Exemption Scheme:

  • The government elevates the subsidy under the existing EII Renewable Levy Exemption scheme from 85% to an impactful 100% aid intensity. This incentivizes and supports the industry’s transition towards renewable energy sources.

2. Full Indirect Exemption from Capacity Market Costs:

  • Introducing a comprehensive indirect exemption from the expenses associated with the Capacity Market. This proactive step significantly eases financial burdens, allowing industries to focus on innovation and growth.

3. Energy-Intensive Industries Network Charging Compensation Scheme:

  • Proposing a compensation mechanism to mitigate charges incurred by Energy-Intensive Industries when utilizing the GB electricity grid through the EII Network Charging Compensation Scheme. This ensures a fair and balanced energy landscape for industries, promoting sustained development.

Industry Voices: A Visionary Approach

Dave Dalton, CEO of British Glass, commends these strategic measures, recognizing their pivotal role in bolstering the glass industry. He states, “The British Industry Supercharger signifies the government’s unwavering support for British industries, including glass manufacturing. These measures are instrumental in driving electrification and reducing carbon emissions in energy-intensive sectors. This initiative propels the glass industry toward a sustainable future, aligning seamlessly with our net-zero ambitions.”
