Following on from the Prime Minister’s comments last month, Mr Clark outlined how the government would deliver on its Clean Growth Grand Challenge of halving energy consumption in all new builds by 2030. Building on this momentum, the Energy Secretary also announced that the government would look to achieve a 43% reduction in public sector greenhouse gas emissions by 2019/20 in comparison to 2009/10.
