Only a third of organisations have registered for the CRC Scheme

Carbon Reduction Commitment Registration

Only a third of organisations have registered for the CRC Scheme

The deadline for public and private organisations to register for the CRC
(Carbon Reduction Commitment) scheme is next month and according to reports
from the Environment Agency only one third of organisations have registered.

On September 30th 2010, every public or private organisation in Britain that
use more than 6,000 Megawatt hours (MWh) of electricity a year is required
to registered for the Carbon Commitment Reduction. Every organisation that
misses the deadline will have to pay a £5,000 fine with an additional £500
for every day they are overdue.

Speaking to, head of climate change and sustainable
development at the Environment Agency, Tony Grayling said:

"Around a third of organisations that we expected to register for the CRC
scheme have registered well in advance of the deadline. We would urge the
remaining businesses to sign up now, and not leave registration to the last

The CRC is Britain's first mandatory energy efficiency scheme aimed to help
the nation meet its Climate Change Bill commitment of reducing 80% of the
CO2 emissions by 2050. As afore mentioned in the first phase only "big"
private and public corporation have to register which is expected to affect
approximately 5,000 organisations in the UK.

But why wait till your company meets the requirements needed to enter the
scheme. Why not start improving your business energy efficiency today?

Energy industry and sustainability experts have stated that homeowners and
business leaders all share a joint responsibility for improving the UK's
energy efficiency and help Britain meet its legally binding commitment to
reducing CO2 emissions by 80% by 2050.

Domestic and business electricity suppliers should work together with their
clients to contribute towards the carbon reduction emissions target by
obliging home and business owners to improve their energy efficiency,
therefore reducing the CO2 emitted by their home and businesses alike.

In short, we all have our share of responsibility to help Britain achieve
the dream of a low carbon society. From the big corporations that consume
thousands of Megawatts per hour every year, to our own homes, if everyone
does their bit the UK can become one of the most energy efficient nations in
the world.
