"Businesses will be required to hand over data on their energy usage to the EU from December next year as part of a new energy efficiency scheme run by UK government.

All firms with over 250 employees or a turnover of €50 million (£39 million) will have to report energy usage every four years with a view to implementing policies that will bring power use down. This will affect about 9,000 UK firms.
