The CRC Energy Efficiency Scheme was introduced to incentivise large energy users in both the private and public sector. Supermarkets, water companies, banks, local authorities and Government departments are among the participants included in the scheme.
The CRC Energy Efficiency Scheme is designed to encourage organisations to develop energy management strategies that promote a better understanding of energy consumption and to take up cost-effective energy
The scheme is expected to reduce non-traded carbon emissions by 16 million tonnes by 2027, supporting the Government’s objective to achieve an 80% reduction in UK carbon emissions by 2050.
Qualification for the CRC Energy Efficiency Scheme is based on your electricity consumption.
A summary of steps to determine whether your organisation qualifies for participation in the CRC and more information on qualification can be found on the Environment Agency CRC web pages.
The Environment Agency administers the CRC Energy Efficiency Scheme on behalf of DECC the UK as a whole. It runs the UK-wide
Auditing and enforcement functions are carried out by the Scottish Environment Protection Agency (SEPA) in Scotland, the Department of the Environment Northern Ireland in Northern Ireland, and Natural Resources Wales (NRW) in Wales.
We’ve helped a number of our clients who’ve qualified for the scheme with tracking, analyzing and understanding their energy consumption. Once we know and understand where and when you are using the energy we discover energy efficiency solutions to reduce your carbon emissions and consumption.
Examples include, Biomass Boilers, Combined Heat and Power (CHP), Solar PV, Hydro Water Scheme and Heat Pumps.
Our energy experts will be more than happy to discuss whether you meet the requirements for the scheme and how your company can comply fully. Get in touch today to start reducing your energy consumption.
