To ask the Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change pursuant to the contribution of the Minister of State for Climate Change to the Public Bill Committee on the Energy Bill [Lords] of 21 June 2011, Written Evidence, column 42S, what progress has been made on establishing follow-on pilot programmes to the local carbon framework pilots.

DECC-supported the £2.5 million Local Carbon Frameworks pilot in 2010-11, which involved 30 local authorities. Its aim was to identify the best ways to reduce carbon emissions at a local level. An evaluation of the pilot and toolkit for the benefit of all local authorities will be published later this year. There are no plans to run further local carbon framework pilots but DECC will continue to support local authorities cut carbon, and I have recently asked the Committee on Climate Change to provide advice on this.
