CRC: Complicated Really Complicated - but here's some useful advice from Carbon Guerilla

I came across some advice on the Carbon Guerilla blog about managing the
Carbon Reduction Commitment Energy
Effficiency Scheme. You can view Carbon Guerilla here

Here are Carbon Guerrillas top 5 tips to do to beat the deadlines and fines:

1 - For registration, your 2008 data only needs to be 80% accurate. This
means you only need 9.6 months of good quality data which can be estimated
and 2 actual bills in a 12 month period.

2 - If you don't have 2008 data then use your 2009 data and approximate your
usage at this stage. But aim to get the bills out of archive or from your
supplier later.

3 - Concentrate on Registration and Data Collection - the Evidence Pack can
wait and be done in October and November, you only need this for an EA
Audit. We think they are going to be pretty busy during this time...

4 - Use the right value for Carbon. We have now processed Registrations
covering over 1500 assets (building and processing sites) and reviewed 3rd
party data. Some of the data is dodgy and are using the wrong metrics - this
make a difference to the budget you may be preparing for next year.

5 - Engage the right director and staff members - they need to get accurate
data to you quickly as well as authorising the cheque for allowances next

Interestingly, according to this Practical Sustainability blog from Paul
Baier, Carbon Guerilla has a new chairman in SAP veteran Les Hayman.
