CRC Energy Efficiency Scheme

CRC Energy Efficiency Scheme

The CRC Energy Efficiency Scheme (formerly known as the Carbon Reduction Commitment) is the UK's mandatory climate change and energy saving scheme. DECC has recently announced it is to start in April 2010.

DECC state the scheme is central to the UK’s strategy for improving energy efficiency and reducing carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions, as set out in the Climate Change Act 2008. It has been designed to raise awareness in large organisations, especially at senior level, and encourage changes in behaviour.

The scheme's amended title is intended to better reflect the CRC’s focus on increasing energy efficiency. More details are available at DECC’s website www.decc.gov.uk.

Feed-in Tariffs announced

Department of Energy and Climate Change

The FITs scheme went live on 1 April 2010. Through the use of FITs DECC hope to encourage deployment of additional low carbon electricity generation, particularly by organisations, businesses, communities and individuals who are not traditionally engaged in the electricity market.

The feed-in tariffs work alongside the Renewables Obligation (RO), which will remain the primary mechanism to incentivise deployment of large-scale renewable electricity generation, and the Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) which will incentivise generation of heat from renewable sources at all scales.
