Energy Savings Trust

Volume 497: debated on Tuesday 13 October 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change if he will place in the Library a copy of the (a) display energy certificate and (b) advisory report for each of the buildings occupied by the Energy Saving Trust's regional advice centres. (289647)

The Energy Savings Trust's (EST) regional advice centres are not required to have display energy certificates or associated advisory reports for public buildings. However, as would be expected, EST has taken steps to identify the energy performance of its buildings.

To ask the Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change what the budget of the Energy Saving Trust was in (a) 2007-08, (b) 2008-09 and (c) 2009-10; what it is planned to be in 2010-11; and how much of that funding was from his Department in each year. (289721)

The Energy Saving Trust (EST) is a not-for-profit private company limited by guarantee, and so their accounts are a matter of public record and are accessible at Companies House.

The following table highlights what DECC, and previously DEFRA, has given in funding to the EST for the valuable work it undertakes to encourage and promote the sustainable and efficient use of energy.
