-- CRC stands for carbon reduction commitment, which is the initiative from the UK government that requires all companies in the UK that consume high levels of energy to make a commitment to reducing their contribution to greenhouse gas emissions. Few would argue with the environmental goal behind this initiative, but in reality many companies have yet to meet their CRC. At Ecoadapt (http://www.ecoadapt.co.uk/)
, we help companies all over the UK meet their carbon reduction commitment (CRC) and reduce their energy bills without inconveniencing their business.
Until a few years ago, companies which installed energy saving technology did so voluntarily and would enjoy reduced energy bills as a direct benefit. With the new CRC energy efficiency scheme any organisation which consumes more than 6,000 MWh of electricity per year (which equates to around a £500k annual spend) will have to meet this commitment in a bid to reduce their greenhouse gas emissions. Companies will be ranked according to their CRC energy efficiency (reduced electricity consumption)
in a league table – between position 1 and 3,000.
This means that any organisations which meet the carbon reduction requirements and which fail to prove their commitment to reducing their consumption will not only face possible damage to their reputation (in an increasingly environmentally-
aware age) but also face a tax of 10% added to their energy bills.
The good news is that with the help of Ecoadapt, companies are easily meeting their CRC requirements through Ecoadapt’s market leading voltage power optimisation technologies. There is no disruption to the running of the business, the technology is installed swiftly and easily and can help position a company at the top half of the all-important CRC league table. What’s more, our key technologies deliver significant energy savings which not only avoid the additional penalty tax but also provide a real reduction in electricity costs.
