Government publishes updates on carbon reduction scheme
The Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC) published a number of documents on Tuesday 25 January discussing plans that will potentially "simplify" the Carbon Reduction Commitment Energy Efficiency Scheme (CRC). The department has proposed: that instead of meeting a number of tests to qualify as an individual CRC supply participant, a counterparty to an energy contract could instead be deemed to be supplied with energy provided under the provisions of an overarching contract; to retain the self-supply provision for electricity and gas; to simplify the treatment of transport related activities; to allow an organisation over several sites to decide the CRC responsibility between them, provided that supplies which would have been included within the scheme when assigned to the counterparty are still incorporated; to assign emissions responsibility on the basis of consumption rather than supply; and to remove or amend the applicable percentage, where participants have to ensure that at least 90% of their EU Emissions Trading Scheme, Climate Change Agreement and CRC emissions are covered by the CRC. Views are invited by 11 March.
