Audit Scotland - Energy efficiency drive in public bodies needs greater urgency
Scotland’s public bodies need to cut their energy use to minimise the impact of predicted price rises and to reduce carbon emissions, says Audit Scotland.
A report published today, Improving energy efficiency: a follow-up, says that in the two years since Audit Scotland last reported on this subject, action has been taken at both national and local levels. The Scottish Government has recently published an action plan to improve energy efficiency, and 85 per cent of public bodies now have energy efficiency strategies. However, today’s report says that greater urgency is now needed.
