The Climate Change Levy (CCL) is a government levy added to your business energy bills.
It is charged for all non-renewable energy that you use and applies to all companies, irrespective of who your energy provider is.
It was introduced in 2001 with the aim of promoting energy efficiency and reducing greenhouse emissions.
The fee appears on your energy bill individually and is gathered on behalf of the state by your energy provider. It is actually a tax on the use of non-renewable energy.
CCL applies to all businesses.
First, you should make sure you fit one or more of the requirements for exemption
If so, one type of excellent news will cover both your decreased VAT rate and your exemption from CCL.

This form can be used to declare your entitlement to a decreased VAT rate at qualifying premises as well as exclusion from the Climate Change Levy.
Once the VAT statement has been finished, your energy provider should be signed and published.
Please note that if you have changed provider since your last VAT statement, you will need to fill out a new statement to continue receiving decreased VAT and exemption from CCL.
You will also be needed to promptly tell your energy provider if your conditions alter that would impact your eligibility for this statement.
If there is, then the excellent news is that you may still be allowed to request an exemption, but there will be an inadequate VAT statement form to accomplish this.
Instead, HMRC will provide a document called the PP11, this is the method you need to use to educate your present company energy provider about the level of CCL relief they need to submit against your Climate Change Levy responsibility.
