ABSTRACT
The article offers information on the Carbon Reduction Commitment (CRC) proposal, which is aimed at reducing energy consumption in Great Britain. To be implemented in April 2010, the initiative would target approximately 5,000 business enterprises in the country that consumes over 6,000 Megawatt hours (MWh) of electricity annually. Under the scheme, electricity from a coal-fire powered station and renewables would be treated the same.
