By publishing reports, the Department of Finance and Personnel is exercising its responsibilities under the Energy Efficiency (Northern Ireland) Order 1999 that provides for it to take such action as it thinks appropriate for the purpose of promoting the efficient use of energy by public bodies.

Purpose of energy reports

Reports are passed to each department or body showing progress over the last 12 months against the base year of 1999-2000. This assists in the development of action plans to improve performance. Summary reports are passed to Ministers indicating progress by the Northern Ireland public sector as a whole. 

The information is also used for other purposes, such as responding to parliamentary questions and similar enquiries, research etc.
