Social and environmental guidance to GEMA
ACE submitted a written response to the Department for Business, Enterprise and Regulatory Reform’s consultation on social and environmental guidance to the Gas and Electricity Markets Authority (GEMA).
In summary, ACE welcomes the proposed new guidance. However, we believe that the proposed guidance needs to reflect a fundamental shift in the role of the Authority to meeting the Government’s climate change objectives as well as a transition to a low carbon economy. We are concerned that the proposed guidance is not as robust as the previous guidance in certain areas. We are also concerned that some of the targets or goals which were incorporated into the previous guidance have now been omitted, thus removing the Authority’s responsibility to contributing to the achievement of these targets or goals.
