Sustainable Buildings

Volume 451: debated on Wednesday 8 November 2006

To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government what assessment she has made of the performance of local authority energy managers in increasing the energy efficiency of buildings managed by local authorities. (100145)

Information about the energy efficiency of housing stock owned by local authorities is collected annually. Between 2000-01 and 2004-05, the average Standard Assessment Procedure (SAP) rating of local authority owned dwellings increased from 52 to 641. SAP is an index of the annual cost of heating a dwelling to achieve a standard heating regime and runs from one (highly inefficient) to 120 (highly efficient). We do not collect data on the energy efficiency of other local authority buildings.
