Article summary

Environment analysis: On 18 July 2018 the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) laid before the Westminster Parliament and the assemblies in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland its CRC Energy Efficiency Scheme (Revocation and Savings) Order 2018 (the Order). This comes into force on 1 October 2018. The Order makes a number of changes to the CRC Energy Efficiency Scheme Orders of both 2010 and 2013. It brings an end to the CRC Energy Efficiency Scheme (CRC) with effect from the end of the current phase (which ends on 31 March 2019), while ensuring that ongoing compliance obligations in respect of that phase (and the prior phase) survive after that date. Angus Evers, a partner in the London office of Shoosmiths specialising in environmental law, outlines these BEIS proposals and comments on the timetable for the wind-down of the CRC. or take a trial to read the full analysis.
