Carbon Reduction Commitment Energy Efficiency (CRC) scheme
The CRC is a mandatory and UK-wide scheme. It covers large business and public sector bodies, who together produce 12% of UK carbon emissions.
This is a joint consultation between:
- the UK Government;
- the Welsh Government; and
- other devolved administrations.
The new plans aim to:
- reduce bureaucracy;
- deliver savings; and
- maintain the benefits of the scheme.
The simplifications include:
- shortening the qualification process;
- reducing the fuels covered;
- reducing the reporting required;
- reducing the time participants have to keep records;
- removing the requirement on facilities to purchase CRC allowances;
- adopting new emissions factors; and
- moving the detailed metrics from legislation to government guidance.
The consultation will run for twelve weeks.
The CRC legislation will be amended by April 2013.
The consultation document is available on the Department of Energy and Climate Change website.
