Serious questions remain about the Government's commitment to the energy efficiency agenda.

For a Coalition which prides itself on financial prudence, it's somewhat surprising that there has been so little focus on what is a sure-fire way to save money.

The fact that key departments, particularly Public Expenditure and Reform, are using more energy than before perhaps exemplifies the attitude of our politicians towards saving money. This is a no-brainer. The Government could be saving huge sums of public money to fund key services instead of giving it to energy giants.
