The UK government has launched an inquiry into F-gas emission policies and the future of the F-gas regulations post-Brexit. “The UK’s F-gas reduction targets are set and monitored by the EU. With Brexit looming, businesses need clarity on how the UK will reduce F-gas emissions and on who will ensure the Government meets its targets,” Environmental Audit Committee chair Mary Creagh said. As part of the EU, the UK is bound to the F-gas regulation (517/2014) and its attendant phase down target to reduce HFC use and sales by 79% by 2030. The UK is also party to the UN’s Montreal Protocol which, through the Kigali Amendment, plans to cut HFC use by a similar amount by 2036. The Kigali Amendment could be seen as a ‘back stop’ if the UK operates outside of the EU’s regulatory regime, but UK withdrawal from the EU raises several issues. Source: COOLING POST
According to findings by the IEA, German citizens reduced their energy costs by $580 (almost €500) in 2016 and if no energy efficiency measures had been undertaken since 2000, German households’ energy-related costs would have been 27 per cent higher. This means that in total, German households cut energy-related costs by $45 billion (€38.3 billion) in 2016.
