Request 101001576747

I have broken down the request into four primary sections:

Part 1
a. Please provide a breakdown of the total amount of electricity consumed (in kWh) by your authority (for example, on local authority-owned buildings and services) for the year 2012 through to 2016 (or the most recently available five-year period).

Part 2
a. Please provide a breakdown of the total expenditure (in GBP) on electricity used by your authority (for example, on local authority-owned buildings and services) for the year 2012 through to 2016 (or the most recently available five-year period).
b. Please provide a breakdown of the total expenditure (in GBP) on all energy used by your authority (for example, on local authority-owned buildings and services) for the year 2012 through to 2016 (or the most recently available five-year period).

Part 3
a. Please provide the proportion of the public lighting in your authority that is LED-based? (Please provide as a percentage and, if possible, the total number of LED and non-LED lights across the authority).
b. Please provide the proportion of the public lighting in your authority that is connected LED lighting? By connected we mean lighting that is connected to allow features such as automated or remotely controlled adjustments to the lighting, data collection or integration with other systems in a building or town. (Please provide as a percentage and, if possible, the total number of connected LED lights across the authority).

Part 4
a. Please provide the proportion of the electricity consumed by your authority (for example, on local authority-owned buildings and services) that comes from renewable sources.

4. The authority does not have direct electricity renewable generation. Purchased electricity is sourced from  a standard grid mix of generators, i.e. not a green tariff therefore this information is exempt under Section 17 of the Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002- Information Not Held.
