Welcome to Energy Manager Magazine!
The Public Sector estate has a significant carbon footprint.
Over £3.5billion is spent on energy use per year by public sector bodies and
energy bills are getting bigger by the day. Energy efficiency is a must given the
current limited resources.
Indeed, the Carbon Trust believes that the public sector could immediately cut its energy bill by £1 billion by implementing energy efficiency projects.
Clearly, therefore the size of the Public Sector places it in a key position to contribute to the UK’s target of achieving an 80% reduction in carbon emissions by 2050 and lead the private sector by example to achieve reductions in energy usage and build a sustainable infrastructure policy for the future
