The Carbon Reduction Commitment Energy Efficiency Scheme (CRC) is the UK's compulsory climate change and energy scheme, and is central to the UK's strategy for improving energy efficiency and reducing Carbon Dioxide (CO2) emissions. The CRC is expected to affect up to 30,000 organisations within the UK, and will take place over a number of scheme phases.
Qualification for the first phase of the CRC is based on an organisation's total half-hourly electricity usage throughout 2008. An organisation will be included in the CRC if its total half-hourly metered electricity use is greater than 6,000 MWh. However, it is possible that the threshold for CRC inclusion may be lowered in subsequent phases.
To aid clients through the CRC, STC have developed a unique, fully managed solution. From initial consultation through to managing recycling payments, our dedicated CRC team can provide expert compliance advice on all aspects of the CRC Scheme.
Our specialist energy management software provides an advanced energy and carbon web reporting system, which is capable of handling all data requirement complexities present within the CRC, including on-site generation, residual fuels and renewable energy.
STC's CRC compliance services can be tailored to suit any client's requirements and can encompass the following:
- Scheme Registration

All of these services can be used to ultimately raise a client's profile within the CRC Performance League Table. This has a direct correlation towards the amount of revenue retrieved from the revenue recycling process within the scheme, together with additional energy savings and efficiencies gained as a result of effective energy management practices.
