The Carbon Reduction Commitment (CRC) Energy Efficiency Scheme is a self-administering programme launched by the Government to reduce carbon emissions and improve energy efficiency.

Consisting of a number of phases, the first phase is now complete and the second phase has been running from April 2014 and is due to be completed by March 2019. It targets businesses and public sector organisations using at least 6,000,000 kWh/year on settled half hourly meters.

Participation includes the monitoring of all qualifying sites, submitting an annual report and purchasing the appropriate tonnage of CO₂ according to strict timelines. The penalties for failing to comply are significant.

Under the scheme, there is considerable emphasis placed on the accuracy of consumption data and ensuring the data is correct protects against unnecessary costs and penalties.
