lord bourneBy Lord Bourne of Aberystwyth who was appointed Parliamentary Under Secretary of State for the Department of Energy and Climate Change and the Wales Office in May 2015.

“In November, the Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC) is sponsoring an energy efficiency award at London’s Energy Management Exhibition (EMEX).

The Secretary of State, Amber Rudd, and I want to ensure the Department and its policies support an economy in which British businesses can thrive, whilst ensuring we take action to tackle the threat of climate change. Helping businesses manage their energy use and celebrating best practice must be at the heart of achieving these goals.

This is genuinely a win-win opportunity. Cutting out avoidable waste through energy efficiency can stimulate growth and improve productivity, cut the cost of energy bills and enhance energy security. It makes business sense to look at all overheads and see where these can be reduced.”
