A survey of manufacturers by energy provider npower has revealed the extent to which a significant number of companies are concerned about UK energy policy, with topics such as investment in renewables, excessive bureaucracy and the lack of influence that business has over issues such as the Climate Change Levy and the Carbon Reduction Commitment high on the list.

While manufacturers welcome changes to simplify the energy landscape, these cannot be made at the expense of encouraging green energy, says npower's Director of Markets and Innovation, Wayne Mitchell. "The Government must maintain the balance between reducing the regulatory burden on businesses and providing incentives for investment in renewables."

With the Chancellor promising to review the issue of business energy regulation, a consultation exercise has been launched to sound out the opinions and concerns of UK industry, in particular any changes to the CCL and CRC.
