Renewable energy 'could be installed at Whitehall'

The government has been told it could add renewable energy installations to Whitehall in order to make it more efficient.

This is according to a spokesperson from The Renewable Energy Centre.co.uk, who stated that the government needs to set an example to people that renewable energy is the way forward.

It recently announced that British homes are to be fitted with insulation in order to make them more energy efficient but the spokesperson said the state must show the way.

"Government buildings and offices should have been first on the agenda for making changes quite a few years ago," commented the Renewable Energy Centre.co.uk representative.

They added that reducing the amount of energy used at Whitehall could be one of the biggest cost-cutting measures the coalition could take as it attempts to slash the budget deficit.

The Department for Energy and Climate Change and the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills are among those taking part in new renewable energy pilot schemes at Whitehall.
