CRC Energy Efficiency Scheme (Carbon Reduction Commitment) 

The CRC Energy Efficiency Scheme (formerly known as the Carbon Reduction Commitment) is the UK's mandatory climate change and energy saving scheme, legislation applies as of April 2010.It 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 and infrastructure. The scheme's amended title serves to better reflect the CRC’s focus on increasing energy efficiency.

The CRC Energy Efficiency Scheme (CRC) is a new regulatory incentive to improve energy efficiency in large public and private sector organisations. It is a mandatory scheme that aims to improve energy efficiency and reduce the amount of carbon dioxide (CO2) emitted in the UK. This is vital to achieving our overall targets of reducing greenhouse gas emissions by 2050 by at least 80% compared to the 1990 baseline.

CRC will affect large organisations in both the public and private sector. Organisations that meet the qualification criteria, which are based on how much electricity they were supplied in 2008, will be obliged to participate in CRC. Participating organisations will have to monitor their emissions and purchase allowances, initially sold by Government, for each tonne of CO2 they emit. The more CO2 an organisation emits, the more allowances it has to purchase. So there is a direct incentive for these organisations to reduce their emissions. As well as reducing our carbon emissions, by increasing energy efficiency the scheme will help organisations save money by reducing their energy bills. These savings should be well in excess of the costs of participating in the scheme. In addition, the better an organisation performs in terms of reducing its emissions, the higher it will appear in the annually published league table, showing the comparative performance of all participants. This in turn provides a further benefit: all the revenue raised from selling allowances is ‘recycled’ back to participants, and the league table position affects how much of the revenue each organisation.
