To ask the Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change, if he will make it his policy to implement a replacement programme to introduce LED lighting throughout his Department's buildings and sites; if he will estimate the proportion of lighting in his Department which is LED; and if he will make a statement.
It is the policy of the Department of Energy and Climate Change to run its estate as energy efficiently as possible and make significant reductions in its energy use. This is done through a range of measures which are carefully assessed for their feasibility and cost effectiveness. Using this approach DECC has installed LED lighting throughout most of its headquarters building, 3 Whitehall Place. It is estimated that two thirds of the building space directly managed by DECC already has LED lighting, with more being installed over the coming months.
