Guidance on CRC launched

Guidance on CRC launched
A new white paper has been released containing advice for businesses ahead of the Carbon Reduction Commitment (CRC).

Commissioned by npower and produced by the London School of Economics, the document urges firms to put plans in place to tackle emissions sooner rather than later.

The UK-wide CRC scheme is due to start next April and the white paper is designed to help businesses prepare for its introduction.

Included in the report is guidance on the obligations of the scheme and suggestions such as developing short, medium and long-term goals for reducing energy consumption.

Businesses are advised to make energy management a key item on the board's agenda and to discuss any plans with energy suppliers in the run up to April 2010.

David Titterton, head of business development for energy services at npower, said: "We understand that these are challenging times for businesses and many are focused on cost saving.

"Putting in place an energy management programme to reduce consumption can help manage costs, while also reducing emissions. Businesses doing this will be better placed to operate under the UK's climate change policies and succeed in a low carbon economy."

CRC has been developed by the Department of Energy and Climate Change in collaboration with the Scottish Government, the Welsh Assembly and the Northern Ireland Department of Environment.

Over recent months, there's been a lot of media focus on the energy industry. The brighter energy debate aims to explain the complexities of the industry and address the issues that affect us all - from energy bills to energy efficiency.

npower has taken an interesting, interactive approach to discussing energy matters and many videos on important topics are planned for release this year.

The first one is npower’s response to the questions surrounding the profits of energy companies. It is an interview with npower CEO Kevin Miles with the broadcaster Peter Snow.
