The Ministry of Justice (MoJ) is committed to reducing its greenhouse gas emissions.

On the MoJ estate there are already a number of renewable micro-generation projects including at Leeds Combined Court and HM Prisons: Haslar; Holloway; Lindholme; Maidstone; Portland; Wayland; Werrington and Wetherby. Micro-generation is often found to be less efficient than other energy reduction projects such as insulation and lighting improvements. The Department continues to prioritise the most cost-effective projects in order to achieve the best value for money.
