The public sector, which encompasses various government agencies and institutions responsible for providing essential services to the public, is a significant user of energy as well as an influence on public behaviours.

The public sector’s energy requirements are diverse and encompass areas such as transportation, infrastructure, healthcare, education, and government operations. Energy is needed to power government buildings, including offices, schools, hospitals, and public facilities. These buildings require electricity for lighting, heating, cooling, and running various equipment and systems. Governments strive to improve energy efficiency in their buildings to reduce costs and environmental impact as well as encourage the public to do the same with their homes and businesses.

Public transportation systems, such as buses, trains, and subways, are major energy consumers Governments often invest in public transport infrastructure and initiatives to promote sustainable transportation options, reduce greenhouse gas emissions, and alleviate traffic congestion.

The Government formulates energy policies and regulations to ensure a reliable and sustainable energy supply for the public sector and the overall economy. They may develop energy plans to diversify energy sources, promote renewable energy, ensure energy security and reduce dependence on fossil fuels.

It prioritises and promotes the adoption of renewable energy sources UK-wide, as well as within its own infrastructure priorities. It invests in renewable energy projects, installs renewables on government buildings, and promote the use of clean energy technologies. These efforts not only reduce carbon emissions but also serve as examples to encourage the private sector and the public to embrace clean energy solutions.

Governments implement energy efficiency programs and incentives to reduce energy consumption and costs in the public sector. This includes upgrading infrastructure, retrofitting buildings with energy-efficient technologies, and encouraging energy-saving practices. By reducing energy demand, governments can achieve cost savings, mitigate environmental impact, and promote sustainable development.

Governments play a crucial role in shaping the energy landscape, promoting energy efficiency, and leading the transition to a more sustainable and resilient energy future.  As energy engineering experts, Calibrate can support the public sector in this mission by proposing and installing solutions to transform an organisation’s energy profile and meet the Government’s agenda to reach net zero.
