The CRC Energy Efficiency Scheme (CRC) is a mandatory UK-wide trading scheme introduced in April 2010 which targets emissions from large public and private sector organisations. It is designed to drive emissions reductions in the target sectors by incentivising the uptake of cost-effective energy efficiency opportunities through the application of financial and reputational drivers.
This consultation is being undertaken as a result of a broader simplification review and engagement with stakeholders. This consultation document builds on the vision set out in June 2011 and sets out specific proposals to simplify the CRC Energy Efficiency Scheme. These proposals take into account feedback from stakeholders on the June publication, feedback from the administrative burden survey and analysis of participant data from reports collected in July 2011.
