The Government have not undertaken any additional assessment on the financial and regulatory costs of the CRC Energy Efficiency Scheme since publication of the final impact assessment in January 2010. The final impact assessment estimated the net benefits overall of the scheme to be £3,800 million. The Government have begun an informal dialogue with scheme participants and other stakeholders on simplification of the scheme. This dialogue will help to inform future proposals for changes to the legislation underpinning the scheme, including in relation to the interaction between the CRC scheme and climate change agreements.
