The Carbon Reduction Energy Efficiency Scheme (CRC)

We take part in the Government's Carbon Reduction Commitment Energy Efficiency Scheme (CRC), which charges certain participants in both the public and private for every tonne of carbon dioxide they emit

The aim of this scheme is to improve energy efficiency and reduce carbon emissions. This will then help drive forward the UK's transition to a low-carbon economy.

We are required to report information about our energy consumption and resulting carbon emissions under the CRC each year, including those associated with schools.

On 28th July 2011 we reported the following carbon emissions for the 2011/2012 CRC submission to the Environment Agency:

 Electricity  10,313 tonnes of carbon dioxide
 Gas  6,504 tonnes of carbon dioxide
 Total  16,817 tonnes of carbon dioxide

Important: Schools (including academies) have a statutory duty to help us in taking part in the CRC by giving energy data and keeping a record of any events which dramatically effects your consumption.

Data will be submitted to the Environment Agency and the allowances bought accordingly. Records will be kept by the Energy Team if schools would like to check that it corresponds to their own records.

For more information about the CRC please visit the Environment Agency website.
