Consultation on a simplified CRC Energy Efficiency Scheme

The Department of Energy & Climate Change (DECC) are inviting views on proposals to streamline and simplify the CRC Energy Efficiency Scheme to create a new leaner, simplified and refocused CRC. DECC’s aim for the simplified CRC is that it will deliver its energy efficiency and carbon reduction objectives whilst making compliance easier and less burdensome for participants.
The proposals for simplification, amongst others, include: reducing the number of the fuels reported from 29 to four – electricity, gas, diesel (when used for heating) and kerosene (when used for heating); using only electricity measured by settled half hourly meters (HHMs) for qualification purposes; and ending the requirement for footprint reports.
DECC will shortly be holding consultation events in both London and Manchester. It is intended that a new CRC Energy Efficiency Scheme Order will be made early next year, to come into effect from 1st April 2013.
The consultation will end on 18th June 2012.
