Public sector signs up to energy demand management initiative

The UK government has signed a four year deal to reduce energy consumption in public buildings, hospitals, universities and military bases at times of peak demand.

It's hoped the demand management initiative will help government departments and agencies in achieving their financial and sustainability targets and reduce strain on the national grid.

Through its Government Procurement Service (GPS), companies including KiwiPower and Flexitricity will provide demand response services to the central government and public sector estate, which uses around 10% of the UK’s total electricity demand. The aim is to help all UK government departments and agencies in achieving their financial and sustainability targets through measures such as curtailing and shifting electricity consumption and using back-up power generation to reduce the strain on the national grid.
