The total energy costs in respect of all buildings owned or rented by my Department, both in Ireland and abroad, amounted to €1,753, 151 in 2008. It is not possible to isolate the cost for heating alone. My Department regularly reviews expenditure on energy and co-operates with the Office of Public Works on initiatives to ensure compliance with best practice, in particular in relation to energy conservation.
