The CRC Energy Efficiency Scheme has been designed so that it only includes organisations that will save enough on energy bills to offset the administrative costs of participating.
Organisations qualify as participants if, during the 2008 calendar year, they had at least one half hourly electricity meter (HHM), settled on the half hourly market and if they consumed at least 6,000 MWh (megawatt hours) through all half hourly meters.
This section provides information on the qualification criteria for the CRC Energy Efficiency Scheme, as well as detailed guidance for public and private sector organisations.
