Energy: Efficiency

Volume 715: debated on Wednesday 16 December 2009

Question

Asked by

To ask Her Majesty's Government whether they are assessing the system of decentralised energy and cogeneration established in Woking; and whether they will assess its suitability for replication elsewhere. [HL612]

Woking is one of a number of decentralised energy and cogeneration initiatives of which we are aware and we continue to follow their progress. We believe that such schemes are replicable in a number of areas across the country as described in the energy White Paper 2007, Meeting the Energy Challenge.

The Household Energy Management Strategy, the follow-up to the Heat and Energy Saving Strategy consultation will be published in the new year. It will set out work the Government have undertaken to support development of these types of scheme.
