Volume 502: debated on Wednesday 16 December 2009

To ask the Minister of State, Department for Business, Innovation and Skills what the (a) energy rating and (b) energy band of each building occupied by his Department and its agencies was in each year for which figures are available. (305970)

The Office of Government Commerce (OGC) publishes central Government Departments' display energy certificate (DEC) operational ratings on a “building by building level” twice a year. The most recent data, published on 31 July, contains DEC data up to and including 28 February. Data relating to the month ending 30 September will be published on 18 December. This information can be found at:

http://www.ocg.gov.uk/government_delivery_display_energy_certificate_data.asp

The table OGC publishes will also include DEC reference numbers for each building, which can be used to view each building's advisory report on the following website:

I have approached the chief executives of the Insolvency Service, Companies House, the National Measurement Office and the Intellectual Property Office and they will respond to you directly.

Letter from Stephen Speed, dated 15 December 2009:

The Minister of State, Department for Business, Innovation and Skills has asked me to reply to your question, what the (a) energy rating and (b) energy band of each building occupied by his Department and its agencies was in each year for which figures are available.

The attached table lists the buildings occupied by The Insolvency Service and shows the (a) energy rating and (b) energy band for them in 2009, where these are known. Where data is not given, we have requested it from the landlords for our premises and are waiting to hear from them. Before 2009 we either had no data, or it was the same as given in the table.

Letter from Peter Mason, dated 16 December 2009:

I am responding in respect of the National Measurement Office to your Parliamentary Question tabled on 7 December 2009, to the Minister of State, Department for Business, Innovation and Skills.

The Agency occupies only one building, at Stanton Avenue, Teddington. The only year for which an Energy Rating has been issued is the current one, the certificate expiring on 19 December 2009. That certificate gives an Energy Rating of 123, Energy Band E. This rating will be reviewed as part of the process for issuing a new certificate.
