Our energy use

We publish live performance data, information and figures on how much energy our headquarters and some other sites use, to make government operations and spending more transparent and sustainable.


We were one of the first departments to provide public access to real-time energy use for our headquarters (2 Marsham Street). The live energy display allows you to view electricity, gas and water consumption interactively as well as waste, cost and carbon dioxide emissions.

The raw energy consumption data we provide is compiled every 24 hours. We now also provide daily updates of energy use at several other Home Office buildings.

We are happy to respond to any queries you have regarding our live energy data, our carbon reduction and other sustainability work. We would appreciate your feedback.

Your views will help influence the way in which we develop this work both in the department and across the whole of government.
