Carbon Reduction Commitment (CRC) Energy Efficiency Scheme

The scheme aims to cut carbon dioxide emissions from large commercial and public sector organisations by 1.1 million tonnes of carbon per year by 2020.

The CRC Energy Efficiency Scheme is a UK emissions trading scheme which began in April 2010.

The scheme applies to organisations if they use at least 6,000 MegaWatt hours of electricity a year.

The CRC Energy Efficiency Scheme has been designed by the UK Government and the devolved administrations. It is administered in Wales by Natural Resources Wales.
