asked the Secretary of State for Energy if he will make a statement on the savings so far achieved by the Monergy campaign in terms of estimated energy use forgone.

The Monergy campaign has been highly successful in pursuing its aim of promoting the cost-effective improvements in the efficiency with which energy is used. Amongst the substantial energy savings which have been made and will continue to be made in the future, savings of over £250 million a year have been identified since the start of the Government's schemes through energy survey grants and over £100 million a year is currently being saved as a direct result of the energy efficiency demonstration scheme. There has been a substantial increase in monitoring and targeting systems and they are now in place in 200 energy-consuming sites. During Energy Efficiency Year 1986, there was an increase of 70 per cent. over the previous year in homes insulated under the community programme. More than 100,000 homes were so insulated during the year.
