Home Office 'Saves' By Reducing Energy

In the last year, the Home Office has saved £1million by reducing energy consumption by 17 per cent.

This represents 5,386 tonnes of carbon and is the fifth highest reduction achieved across Government departments.

The Department for Education came top of the Whitehall table, with a 21.5 per cent reduction.

The department focused on managing its buildings better, including introducing time-schedules for air conditioning and heating and installing sensors so lights go off automatically when staff leave rooms.

PC power management was also installed to PCs which shuts desktops down automatically when not in use.
