The Carbon Reduction Commitment will bring in the UK’s first mandatory carbon trading scheme & started in April 2010. It covers large non-energy intensive business and public sector organisations.
About 5000 Organisations will come within the scope of the new legislation, ranging from retailers, banks, water companies, hotel chains, universities and local authorities.
The scheme is compulsory for large organisations using more than 6,000 MWh/year of half-hourly metered electricity, which translates to roughly £500,000 in electricity bills, and is aimed at encouraging these large organisations to reduce their fixed source energy consumption.
Companies will have to start buying carbon allowances to cover their carbon emissions, and that will involve measuring and recording energy use and calculating carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions.
By having Tintfit’s window films installed, you’ll be keeping solar energy out of your building, resulting in a cooler climate for less strain on your HVAC unit and significantly lower utility bills, our Spectra range hardly even alter the light levels either.
In fact, Tintfit’s films are so effective that it usually pays for itself in just a couple of years, as well as contributing to your Organisations continued commitment in reducing your carbon Allowance, so reducing running costs, carbon allowance Vouchers & reducing the risk of fines, if the energy targets set are not met!
Because Tintfit’s films reject solar energy, it leads a reduction in energy used to keep the interior temperature comfortable.
Organizations that have committed to reducing their carbon footprint can easily and cost-effectively fit Tintfit’s films into an overall strategy to reduce CO2 emissions.
Also If you are looking for a carbon Neutral Building, Did you know Tintfit’s Solar Control window film is actually carbon negative! (ie; it saves more energy in it’s lifetime than it takes to produce)
