ENDS (Environmental Data Services);Jan2010, Issue 420, p44
The article reports on the proposal of the Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC) to increase the Carbon Emissions Reduction Target (CERT) in order to cut household carbon dioxide emissions in Great Britain, as of January 2010. It mentions that the scheme orders energy utilities to produce a target level of emissions savings. DECC believes that energy utilities should not be able to claim carbon dioxide savings by offering retail stores discounted energy-efficient light bulbs.
