Chris Huhne: CRC scheme 'has fallen short'

Chris Huhne: CRC scheme 'has fallen short'
Implementation of the Carbon Reduction Commitment (CRC) Energy Efficiency Scheme has 'fallen short of the ideal', Chris Huhne has admitted.

Speaking at the Confederation of British Industry Conference, the energy and climate change secretary said that the government has made a commitment to simplify the programme, starting with a consultation to delay phase II of the scheme.

Published this week, the consultation means that businesses will not have to register for the second phase of the scheme until 2013.

Mr Huhne said this delay will allow a "window for us to engage in a proper dialogue" and help reduce the "administrative burden" on those taking part.

The government announced its intention to simplify the CRC scheme in the Comprehensive Spending Review in October.

"Given a blank slate, we would do things a little differently. But for now, you have my assurance that we will engage with all of our stakeholders to make the scheme work better – for you, and for us," he told the conference.

The secretary also spoke on the risks that climate change poses to British business.  ADNFCR-1235-ID-800242950-ADNFCR
