In my answer of 4 July 2011, Hansard, column 1029W, I referred specifically to three sources of low-carbon energy generation on the FCO UK estate:

(i) Plans to install a tri-generation heat, cooling and power plant in our King Charles street headquarters

(ii) Solar hot water technology at our ICT building at Hanslope park

(iii) A biomass boiler at our Wilton park Executive agency

The tri-generation heat, cooling and power plant project at King Charles street is in the design phase. A decision has not yet been taken on which company will supply the engine for the plant.

The solar hot water technology at Hanslope park was manufactured in Germany.

The biomass boiler at Wilton park was manufactured in Austria.
