HC Deb 22 February 1980 vol 979 cc583-4W
Mr. Knox

asked the Secretary of State for Energy if he will list the Government schemes for auditing energy use; and if he will make a statement about the success of these schemes.

Mr. John Moore

My Department's energy survey scheme provides assistance in industry, commerce and the public sector with surveys of energy use of one day's duration or longer. Some 18,000 surveys have been carried out to date and an exercise is currently under way to asses the effectiveness of the scheme in terms of energy savings. The energy-saving information service provided by my Department also includes the distribution on request of fuel efficiency booklets, two of which are specifically aimed at helping organisations to audit their energy consumption. Over 150,000 of these two booklets have been issued to date. In addition, two films have been prepared by the Central Office of Information which have auditing of energy use as a key theme. These films are available free on loan from the Central Film Library and nearly 1,400 bookings have been made to end January 1980.
