CRC Energy Efficiency Scheme

The CRC Energy Efficiency Scheme (formerly known as the Carbon Reduction Commitment) is new mandatory UK legislation

The CRC Energy Efficiency Scheme is a new, mandatory, energy saving and carbon emissions reduction scheme for the UK. It will act as an incentive to improve energy efficiency and will help large private and public sector organisations generate cost savings through reduced energy bills. These savings should exceed the cost of participating.

The CRC starts in April 2010. If you qualify for the CRC scheme you will have to register via a purpose built on-line CRC registry between 1 April and 30 September 2010 and either register as a CRC participant or make an information disclosure.

Participating organisations will need to monitor their emissions and purchase allowances to emit Carbon Dioxide (CO2). The more CO2 an organisation emits, the more allowances it will need to purchase, so there is a direct incentive to reduce emissions Daniamant Ltd (Uk) currently consume less than 6,000 MWh of electricity and have therefore made an Information Disclosure under the scheme requirements.
