The public sector has been recognised for its efforts to significantly increase energy efficiency and reduce greenhouse gas emissions in the Energy Awards 2000, organised by Transco and the Major Energy Users Council.

Tower Hamlets LBC, Lancashire CC, Woking BC and Perthshire Housing Association have all taken awards.

Tower Hamlets LBC was judged to have made the Best Use of Gas with its refurbishment of the Barkantine Estate which, aside from considerable environmental and energy savings, resulted in financial savings to residents of 60%. Perthshire Housing Association was runner-up in this category.

Lancashire CC received the title of Best Energy Strategy for its street lighting campaign which is planned to give savings of 17.5GWh/year, 12,700 tonnes of CO2/year and£45,000/year.

Woking BC was runner-up in the prestigious Kyoto Cup category - the overall award for the organisations that are exemplars in all aspects of energy and environmental management. Woking is the only Local Authority to supply customers on private wire Combined Heat and Power networks as well as implementing energy and environmental services in public and private sectors.

The chairman of the Judging Panel, Lord Erza, said: 'It is pleasing to see that the organisations have developed energy strategies that will deliver optimum savings in specific energy consumption and emissions.'

Awards were presented in the categories of Best Use of Gas, Best Use of Electricity, The Most Effective Implementation of a Campaign, Best Energy Strategy and The Kyoto Cup (the overall award).
