This section offers news briefs in the sustainable energy sector of Great Britain as of September 2011. The Department for Transport said that a number of fuel suppliers were not able to meet the voluntary carbon target for biofuels in 2010/2011. From 2008-2009, the carbon dioxide statistics of Great Britain decreased in almost all council area emissions. A total of 50 million British pounds of public money will be handled by the London Energy Efficiency Fund.
