asked the Secretary of State for Energy what steps he is taking to encourage greater energy conservation and the use of energy conservation devices in the public sector, particularly in regard to heat loss in tower blocks and from both military and civil government establishments, and to promote low-cost, alternative energy generators at remote locations.

The Government's energy efficiency campaign which aims to promote energy efficiency over all sectors of the economy has generated an upsurge in interest and activity. In particular, I am encouraging the appointment of energy managers in both public and private sectors whose task it is to act as a focus for the improvement of energy efficiency in their own establishments.
