Defra publishes energy usage online

Defra publishes energy usage online
The Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra) has become the latest government department to publish its real-time energy usage online.

Data on how much power is being used by the department at any given moment and information on usage in the last 24 hours, the cost of electricity and carbon emissions can now be found on Defra's website.

"The valuable energy performance data generated will help to raise awareness amongst Defra staff and provides a further incentive to reduce our energy use," the department claimed.

All government departments have committed to providing such information, with the Home Office and the Department for Energy and Climate Change becoming the first to do so in June.

Commenting on the measures earlier in the year, the secretary of state for energy and climate change, Chris Huhne MP, said that the government must lead by example if it "expect[s] businesses and homes up and down the country to follow suit".

The government has pledged to cut its carbon emissions by ten percent in the next year.  ADNFCR-1235-ID-800011810-ADNFCR
