To ask the Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change, what assessment he has made of the capacity of his Department's buildings for the micro-generation of renewable energy; and if he will make a statement.

The Department has assessed the capacity for micro-generation of renewable energy of its buildings, particularly the installation of solar photovoltaic and solar thermal panels, on several occasions over the past four years. So far this has not proved as effective as energy saving measures in reducing the department’s carbon footprint. We are keeping this position under review. DECC has a very small estate and so the opportunities for micro-generation are limited.
