Administer Energy Use

Energy use should be administered and made efficient in all areas of public sector activity. The energy management of premises, attention to energy efficiency in procurements and in transport and community planning are a step toward comprehensive activity for energy efficiency.

Energy efficiency is an important facet of bringing about sustainable development in the public sector, including in the activities of the state, municipalities and municipal groupings. With consistent and efficient energy use the greenhouse gas emissions causing climate change can be reduced. Voluntary energy efficiency agreements, the municipalities’ climate protection campaign and local agendas create a good basis to reducing environmental impacts.
