The introduction today of two carbon cutting Government incentive schemes will see homes and businesses playing a key role in contributing to UK emissions reductions of at least 34% on 1990 levels by 2020 through improved energy efficiency and small-scale low-carbon electricity.

The Government's Carbon Reduction Commitment Energy Efficiency Scheme (CRC EES) for organisations and Feed in tariffs (FITs) will help to save money on fuel bills, reduce carbon emissions and generate their own low-carbon electricity.

Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change, Ed Miliband, said:

"From today the rewards for businesses and householders who act to cut their carbon emissions really start to pay off. It's no longer simply about doing the right thing for the environment, it’s now a sure-fire financial investment.

"The UK is leading the way in tackling climate change. Organisations and householders can play a central role in leading the move to a low carbon economy whilst saving money on their energy bills."
