The Department does not hold information on the entirety of energy use by the buildings on its estate as a (relatively small) proportion are provided ‘off contract’, falling outside the frameworks and local contracts.

However, the Department’s recorded energy consumption across its estate, falling under the frameworks and local contracts, for the previous 5 years and current year to date is shown in the table below:


5,229,447,046 kWh


5,213,898,631 kWh


5,090,803,519 kWh


4,974,891,458 kWh


4,967,433,252 kWh

2020-21 (up to April 30)

384,641,178 kWh
