In respect of the Minister's departmental office(s), has the building(s) received energy efficiency upgrades; if so, (a) when; and (b) how has this upgrade affected (i) average energy use, and (ii) average energy cost.


Mr Turnbull: As the honourable member is aware, I was sworn in as Prime Minister on 15 September 2015. As the honourable member's question relates to matters before that date, I am advised by the Department of the Prime Minister and Cabinet that the answer to the honourable member's question is as follows:

In 2014 -2015 the Department undertook a minor energy efficiency upgrade of the basement lighting of One National Circuit, Barton. This upgrade achieved a saving of approximately 13,000 kilowatts per annum equalling a cost saving of $2,500 per annum.
