CRC Compliance

The CRC Energy Efficiency Scheme

​​​​​​​​​​​​​The CRC is the UK's mandatory climate change and energy efficiency scheme. Formerly known as the Carbon Reduction Commitment, the CRC came into force on April 1st 2010. Any business who purchases energy on the half hourly market will have responsibilities under the scheme. The CRC will have a significant impact on those in the real estate sector, particularly now that revenue recycling has been withdrawn, including

  • Cost of CRC allowances
  • Impact on reputation
  • Significant time and resource implications

CRC Phases

Phase 1​

There are no significant changes to the CRC registry’s interface from last year.

The Performance League Table will no longer be published, but you will still be able to enter your relevant financial turnover figure. Entering this information is voluntary.

Phase 2

The window for registration for Phase 2 will be from November this year to end of January 2014. All existing participants will need to confirm qualification and any new participants will need to register.

Qualification is based on half hourly meter consumption in 2012/13 and the threshold remains at 6,000 MWh, the same as Phase 1. This applies to the organisation structure as at 31 March 2013. Click here for more information.
