Answer for Business Energy Challenge

Answered By: 
The Mayor

The first stage of the Business Energy Challenge is to gather data to provide a better understanding of carbon dioxide emissions from private sector work places. This data will help inform energy performance benchmarks for buildings, which given the diversity of buildings and circumstances (e.g. working hours) are difficult to establish. The Awards will be based on reductions in carbon intensity per metre squared since 2010.
