CRC Energy Efficiency Scheme
What is the CRC Energy Efficiency Scheme?
The Carbon Reduction Commitment Energy Efficiency Scheme (CRC) is a mandatory reporting system for carbon emissions covering gas and electricity for large commercial and public sector organisations.
Qualification is based on electricity usage.
The allowance price changes each year, and the potential cost can be high, with the aim of improving efficiency and reducing carbon emissions. The price for allowances bought in the compliance sale are:
2015/16 reporting year: £16.90 per tonne of CO2
2016/17 reporting year: £17.20* per tonne of CO2
2017/18 reporting year: £17.70* per tonne of CO2
2018/19 reporting year: £18.30* per tonne of CO2
The price for allowances bought in the forecast sale are:
2016/17 reporting year: £16.10 per tonne of CO2
2017/18 reporting year: £16.60* per tonne of CO2
2018/19 reporting year: £17.20* per tonne of CO2
* The 2016 Budget announced that sale prices would increase by RPI until the closure of the scheme at the end of the 2018/19 compliance year. Prices are subject to parliamentary approval.
