The article announces that Great Britain's Carbon Reduction Commitment Energy Efficiency Scheme will come into force in April 2010. It notes that the regulation has emerged from the country's Climate Change Act which aims to meet strict carbon emission targets. The regulation intends to make businesses more energy-efficient. Organisations consuming more than 6,000 megawatt hour (MWh) of electricity every year are covered by the scheme.
