NI 186 definition
• 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 a Priority Target

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
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?
Basis of three tier system
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
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

And that is just Year 1, this then needs to be repeated in each
of the next two years

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

My question is one tonne in Cambridge City, will
that be as achievable in the other areas?
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

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
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?
