asked the Secretary of State for Industry if he will list the schemes introduced by his Department to promote the use of energy audits in industry: and if he will make a statement about the success of these schemes.

Studies done as a follow up to this scheme have shown that a selection of firms have taken energy saving measures, including the use of energy audits which have produced savings of £6 million per annum.
