To ask the Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change, what steps he has taken to insulate his Departmental estate in order to improve energy efficiency; and if he will make a statement.
8 December 2014
The Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC) has investigated the viability of insulating the two buildings it manages and has installed additional insulation in its headquarters building, 3 Whitehall Place. DECC is committed to running its estate as energy efficiently as possible and making significant reductions in its energy use. This is done through a range of measures, including insulation, which are carefully assessed for their feasibility and cost effectiveness.
