Detail

A new report published by the Environment Agency estimates that up to 11.6 million tonnes of carbon dioxide a year could be avoided by 2020 through the CRC Energy Efficiency Scheme (CRC). This reduction in emissions could be achieved at no long-term extra cost, and could even be cost beneficial to participants, due to lower energy bills. This study provides the first independent quantification of the potential carbon emissions savings possible under the CRC.
