Carbon reduction commitment (CRC)
The carbon reduction commitment (CRC) energy efficiency scheme is the UK's first mandatory carbon trading scheme.
The scheme aims to reduce the level of carbon dioxide emissions and increase energy efficiency.
Under the CRC Ealing LA has to submit energy consumption data on an annual basis for:
- Maintained schools
- Voluntary aided schools
- Foundation schools
- Nurseries/children's centres with a DfE number.
Statutory duties and financial penalties
To comply with CRC requirements you have a statutory duty to provide Ealing LA with information on their energy use.
Each year your school, academy or children's centre (as listed above) has to submit an annual energy consumption report and provide evidence (utility bills) alongside by the due date.
Financial penalties will be imposed if you don't:
- Provide accurate data
- Meet the deadline date.
