Great news from our FM department, who manage energy consumption for the Scottish Court Service (SCS). We have helped them move up to second place in the public sector Carbon Reduction Commitment (CRC) Performance League Tables.
What does this mean?
This means that SCS is into the top 5% overall (moving up the table to 81st place) and in terms of Scottish public bodies, 2nd place! The energy management provided by our FM department has helped make a real difference to their energy consumption and we are delighted with the progress made in reducing their carbon emissions.
What is the CRC Energy Efficiency Scheme?
The CRC Energy Efficiency Scheme (often referred to as simply ‘the CRC’) is a mandatory scheme aimed at improving energy efficiency and cutting emissions in large public and private sector organisations. These organisations are responsible for around 10% of the UK’s emissions. Qualifying organisations have to comply legally with the scheme or face financial and other penalties.
Are you eligible for the CRC Energy Efficiency Scheme?
Talk to our FM professionals and find out how an energy health check from Arthur McKay could help you. Organisations are eligible for the CRC if they (and their subsidiaries) have at least 1 half-hourly electricity meter (HHM) settled on the half-hourly market. Organisations that consumed more than 6,000 megawatt-hours (MWh) per year of half-hourly metered electricity during a qualification year are required to participate and must register with the Environment Agency, which administers the scheme.
