We have a wide range of complementary policies in place to support public and private sector organisations of all sizes in reducing their energy use – including in the York Central constituency. For instance, the Energy Savings Opportunity Scheme is estimated to help large private sector organisations save over £250m per year through identifying cost-effective energy efficiency opportunities.

Across the domestic and non-domestic sector, UK energy consumption has fallen in nine of the last ten years and our energy efficiency policies have contributed to the UK having the least energy intensive economy in the G7 – 33% below the G7 average in 2012.
