Parliament approves CRC amendments

Parliament and the devolved administrations agreed amendments to the Carbon Reduction Commitment (CRC) Energy Efficiency Scheme

Parliament and the devolved administrations agreed amendments to the Carbon Reduction Commitment (CRC) Energy Efficiency Scheme on 16 February.1 Their main purpose is to extend the first phase of the CRC by one year to the end of 2013/14.

They also delayed the start of scheme’s second, cap-and-trade, phase by delaying registration by two years to 2013/14 and emissions trading to 2014/15. And they revoke the requirement for organisations that are not full participants to continue disclosing information on energy use at the start of future phases. DECC consulted on the amendments late last year (ENDS Report 430, pp 8-9).
