"Some industries were very active in managing their energy use. About 90 percent of public administration and safety organisations had energy-saving initiatives in place. While in the accommodation and food services industry:

  • 60 percent monitored their use or the cost of energy
  • 50 percent provided information on energy savings to staff
  • 50 percent had installed energy-saving technologies.

The industries with lower rates of energy management or savings possibilities were those dominated by small organisations"
