Departmental Energy

Volume 508: debated on Tuesday 6 April 2010

To ask the Secretary of State for Health what (a) voltage optimisers and (b) equivalent technologies are used within buildings occupied by his Department. (324975)

The Department is currently looking at the feasibility of installing voltage optimisers across the Department's London estate as part of our Carbon Management Programme to reduce energy consumption.

There are no equivalent technologies used within buildings occupied by the Department in its central administrative estate which consists of Richmond house, London SW1A, Wellington house, London SE1, and Skipton house, London SE1. The Department is a minor occupier in New Kings Beam house, London SE1 (a HM Revenue and Customs building) and Quarry house in Leeds LS2 (a Department for Work and Pensions building).
