CRC could leave renewable energy in the doldrums

May 2009
ENDS (Environmental Data Services);May2009, Issue 412, Special section p17
The article speculates the obstacles that the British Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC) may encounter with the role renewable energy could play under the carbon reduction commitment (CRC) scheme. One approach the DECC could take, according to Gary Freedman of electricity supplier Ecotricity, is to consider that renewable energy receiving support outside the Renewables Obligation (RO) may be able to monitor emissions savings under the CRC. The concerns of trade bodies with building on-site renewable energy under the CRC are examined.
