ABSTRACT
The article reports that the 280-page tome that set out the government's consultation on a renewable energy strategy for Great Britain devotes just 11 pages to a rather short chapter on saving energy. It is noted that the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra) has always seen itself as the lead department when it comes to energy efficiency. The chapter's conclusion stated that saving energy cannot be seen as a separate element of energy or climate change policy, it is integral to all of it.
