Volume 506: debated on Tuesday 2 March 2010

To ask the Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change what support the (a) Energy Savings Trust and (b) Carbon Trust has provided to the residents of Stroud constituency in each year since 2004. (318978)

The Energy Saving Trust (EST) is currently overseeing the Pay as You Save (PAYS) trials for DECC in which Stroud district council is participating.

EST's services are available to all UK citizens. These include a free telephone advice service (the Act on CO2 Advice Line in England) which offers callers advice on energy saving behaviour, how to make our homes more energy efficient, energy efficient products, low carbon energy, sustainable travel, efficient use of water, and waste minimisation. Advice and self-help tools are also available through EST's web advice services.

The Carbon Trust (CT) provides specialist support to business and the public sector to help cut carbon emissions, save energy and commercialise low carbon technologies.

It is not possible to provide a funding breakdown at a constituency level for EST and CT support.
