Carbon Reduction Commitment (CRC)

Measuring emissions for the Carbon Reduction Commitment to avoid being overcharged

The Carbon Reduction Commitment Energy Efficiency Scheme (CRC) is an emissions trading scheme designed to improve energy efficiency and reduce the amount of carbon dioxide (CO2) emitted in the UK. The CRC applies to all organisations consuming over 6,000 MWh of electricity per year. These organisations will be taxed for the carbon dioxide emissions that are attributable to energy consumption.

They will need to monitor and report all energy use emissions from all sources – electricity, gas and other fuels. An automatic 10% uplift will be applied to consumption figures which are estimated. Providing accurate energy consumption data will allow you to avoid this unnecessary cost.
