Energy in the council estate

We currently spend almost £5 million each year on gas, electricity, district heating and cooling for our buildings and operations, including street and traffic lighting and schools.

Our carbon reduction policy has set a Carbon Dioxide (CO2) reduction target of 40% by 2020, against 2010-2011 levels.
