Energy Efficiency of 40,000 Public Buildings in England and Wales

The Guardian has published a map showing the carbon footprint of 40,146 public buildings in England and Wales. Including every school, hospital, police station and council office. The data comes via a freedom of information request from the Centre for Sustainable Energy. Buildings are rated from A – most efficient – through to G – least efficient – and plotted onto this map.

Even if you don’t see man-made climate change as an issue there’s still some incredible energy wastage going on here. Fewer than 200 of the 40,000 buildings fall in the top rated category.

  • The UCA is Band D
  • Farnham Post Office is Band G
  • Farnham Castle is Band D
  • HMRC in the Woolmead is Band F
  • Farnham Hospital is Band D
  • Pilgrims Way Primary School is Band F
  • Alice Holt Lodge is Band G
  • Heath End and William Cobbett Schools are Band D
  • and so on…
