Member Training Climate Change from Ambition to Action 13th November 2009 Workshop

  1. 1. Climate Change <from Ambition to Action> Chris Allen Richard Davies
  2. 2. QUESTIONS? • What’s good? (Best Practice) • Who can help us? (Provider Landscape) • What can we deliver? (Plan) • What else do we need? (leadership, £, regulation, knowledge?)
  3. 3. Session 1 Climate Change, Peak Oil & Energy Security <without hot air> Richard Davies Director
  4. 4. Good Morning
  5. 5. Threat?
  6. 6. The energy tri-lemma 1. Affordability 2. Reliability 3. Low Carbon
  7. 7. Professor David MacKay Chief Scientific Advisor of the Department of Energy & Climate Change (DECC)
  8. 8. ‘The best scientific projections indicate that we have very little time left - indeed, less than one hundred months - in which to alter our behaviour drastically. Although I wish it were otherwise, I fear we have reached the point when if we do too little, too late to tackle this problem, the consequences could be catastrophic.’
  9. 9. "Regardless of which route we choose, the world's current predicament limits our maneuvering room. We are experiencing a step-change in the growth rate of energy demand due to population growth and economic development, and Shell estimates that after 2015 supplies of easy-to-access oil and gas will no longer keep up with demand." Jeroen van der Veer, CEO Shell 28th January 2008

  12. 12. 1850
  13. 13. What does this mean for AnyPlace in 2020? Meeting carbon budgets in 2020 will require a reduction in average per person emissions from the current level of 9 tCO2 to 6 tCO2. In a County where carbon budgets are achieved, the typical person will: • Meet more of their energy needs from low-carbon power. • Live in well-insulated homes with new efficient boilers and advanced heating controls. • Purchase energy-efficient appliances and use these on low-carbon cycles (e.g. low temperature washing and dishwashing). • Work in energy-efficient offices with power and heating from low carbon sources. • Drive more carbon-efficient cars, including hybrids, electric cars or plug-in hybrids with charging infrastructure at home, at work and in public places. • Drive in an eco-friendly manner (e.g. not carrying excess weight in the car) and within the existing speed limit. • Plan journeys better and use public transport more. Together these changes would be sufficient to achieve carbon budgets. They could significantly improve energy security of supply and air quality, and therefore maintain or improve quality of life.
  14. 14. ‘We have a vision of a different Britain. It is a vision of a Britain in which our cars run on electricity; high speed trains whisk us from North to South in less time than it takes to get across greater London; we produce much more but use much less energy to do it; our power suppliers no longer depend to any great extent on imported oil and gas; our homes require less energy, produce far more of their own energy and are heated by gas we produce from our own agricultural and domestic waste. It is a vision of a Britain which leads the world in new green technologies. Secured against interruptions of supply and volatile prices, our industry can plan for growth. Our national security is guaranteed, regardless of decisions by volatile governments elsewhere to close pipelines or restrict supply. It is a decentralised vision rather than one in which all decisions about our energy future are vested in the government. Through it we play our full part in protecting our planet against the effects of man-made climate change.’
  15. 15. Opportunity?
  16. 16. QUESTIONS? • Too much rhetoric & not enough action? • Are Local Authorities taking climate change seriously? • Is the lack lustre progress because no-one is ACCOUNTABLE • How do we create more WILLFUL INDIVIDUALS and LEADERS? • Do Local Authorities understand what the opportunities are?
  17. 17. Session 2 Low Carbon Communities <Reducing CO2 emissions. A tour of National Indicator 186> Richard Davies Director
  18. 18. Sub Title If you don’t know where you are going you are almost certain to end up there
  19. 19. Who’s signed up to NI186? • Birmingham • Stoke-on-Trent • Coventry • Telford & Wrekin • Dudley • Warwickshire • Herefordshire • Sandwell • Worcestershire • Staffordshire
  20. 20. In the eye of the storm: councils at the heart of tackling climate change Climate change mitigation in the local authority performance framework James Gorie DECC – Low carbon economy: local & regional government team
  21. 21. Background to climate Change Indicators • Need for requirement for local authorities to tackle climate change recommended by Centre for Sustainable Energy report in 2005 • Commitment in the 2006 UK Climate Change Programme for the new local authority performance framework to include an “appropriate focus” on climate change • LGA’s Climate Change Commission recommended stronger requirements for LAs to address climate change in its 2007 report • Environmental Audit Committee called for compulsory climate change targets in report published in 2008
  22. 22. National Indicator 186 – per capita emissions in local authority areas • Measures all carbon emissions which a local authority and its partners can reasonably influence (does not include emissions from motorways, large industrial installations, etc.) • Two-thirds of LAAs contain a target against this indicator • Progress is measured from a 2005 baseline for the period 2005-10 (six calendar years inclusive) • Emissions data compiled centrally by DECC
  23. 23. Local authority potential to reduce per capita emissions in their areas Forecasted % reduction in CO2 from 2005 levels by national, national with local influence and purely local measures by 2010 and 2020. 2010 National 7.4% 2010 National with LA influence 4.7% 2010 Local 0.4% 2020 National 10.3% 2020 National with LA influence 12.0% 2020 Local 0.6%
  24. 24. How progress against indicators and targets will be assessed • Performance against all indicators to be assessed annually by Audit Commission’s Comprehensive Area Assessment process. Evidence used will include: - NI performance data (a high level ‘can-opener’). - local performance management information including self-evaluation - LAAs, Sustainable Community Strategies and other locally agreed targets - intelligence acquired throughout the year by CA lead • Performance of LAA targets to be assessed by Government offices
  25. 25. What will good performance look like against NI 186 (per capita emissions)? • Quantitative evidence that emissions are falling in local area is important but qualitative evidence of effective action by local authorities and partners is also key • Evidence that a credible plan is in place to tackle emissions and that progress is being monitored and achieved • Evidence of community engagement (working with LSP partners, for example) • Target set in LAA is challenging and achievable
  26. 26. LA Area CO2 Indicator – what is included? EU-ETS Agriculture Industry Refineries Power Stations Business & Gas Production + end user emissions Solid Fuel Production Public Sector Domestic Large Industrial Processes: Chemical Cement Iron and Steel Transport Included Excluded Motorways
  27. 27. Climate Change and the CAA Andy Walford Service Head Environment Audit Commission
  28. 28. Where is climate change important in the assessment of areas and organisations? • Climate change is a key factor in CAA because- – We have to adapt to a changing climate now- some communities are increasing experiencing the consequences or more extreme weather, others will follow e.g. floods, snowfall, etc…. – And this affects both service delivery and wider outcomes – Mitigating the environmental damage our society causes is of equal importance; e.g. CO2 emissions, waste, consumption of natural resources etc
  29. 29. In conclusion • Understanding and responding to climate change is a key part of the CAA • It’s much more than just “what do the National Indicators say?” • We will want to understand outcomes for the area as well as organisational performance
  30. 30. SESSION 2 QUESTIONS? • How many Local Authorities & communities have an understanding of the DESTINATION & ROUTE MAP? • Who should be deciding on what options are most appropriate? Central Govt. / Elected Members / Others…… • Is this much too complex for ‘lay-people’?

  55. 55. “Make no little plans. They have no magic to stir men's blood... Make big plans; aim high in hope and work.” Daniel Hudson Burnham 1846-1912 “Search all the parks in all your cities; you'll find no statues of committees.” David Ogilvy 1911-1999
  56. 56. “What we think, or what we know, or what we believe is, in the end, of little consequence. The only consequence is what we do.” John Ruskin
  57. 57. "Until one is committed, there is hesitancy, the chance to draw back. Concerning all acts of initiative (and creation), there is one elementary truth that ignorance of which kills countless ideas and splendid plans: that the moment one definitely commits oneself, then Providence moves too. All sorts of things occur to help one that would never otherwise have occurred. A whole stream of events issues from the decision, raising in one's favour all manner of unforeseen incidents and meetings and material assistance, which no man could have dreamed would have come his way. Whatever you can do, or dream you can do, begin it. Boldness has genius, power, and magic in it. Begin it now." W.H. Murray
