Environment secretary David Miliband has announced a scheme to help public sector bodies cut carbon emissions.

Speaking at last week's Labour conference, Mr Miliband pledged£10m support for Partnership for Renewables, a programme run by the Carbon Trust, which aims to partner with private sector organisations to develop onsite renewable energy projects with councils, hospitals and other public organisations.

The scheme will begin with the development of 10 lead projects over the next year, including one at Nottingham City Council.

Nottingham's deputy leader Michael Edwards (Lab) said: 'This could help the public sector become better organised so that it can do the job and take action against climate change.'
