The government has published more information on its proposed mandatory emissions trading scheme for large organisations like supermarkets, hotels, water companies and local authorities. The carbon reduction commitment (CRC) is due to begin in 2010, and will apply to around 5,000 large, non-energy intensive organisations that have half-hourly electricity meters and use more than 6,000 kWhr of electricity per year. In order to demonstrate leadership, all government departments will be included in the scheme regardless of whether they meet the inclusion criteria. Defra has allocated £30 million, spread over three years, to provide interest-free loans to departments and other public bodies, like local authorities and hospitals, to invest in energy saving measures.
