Will your company be affected by the new CRC scheme?

By 1st March 2010February 15th, 2022No Comments

From April this year, an estimated 70,000 companies in the UK with half-hourly electricity meters will be legally required to register under the Environment Agency’s CRC Energy Efficiency Scheme (CRC).

Put simply, CRC is a cap-and-trade scheme which offers financial incentives in return for improved energy efficiency.
All the UK’s 70,000 or so organisations with half-hourly electricity meters will be obliged to register and, of these, around 5,000 large public and private sector organisations whose annual consumption is 6,000MWh or more will be legally bound to participate fully or face financial and other penalties.

For an ‘at-a-glance’ guide to participation and compliance requirements, and to find out more about how the scheme might impact on your organisation, download a copy of our new CRC Scheme brochure.
