Around a third of the UK’s CO2 emissions come from the energy used for heating, lighting and appliances. Often, this energy is not being used efficiently, so there is huge scope for householders and businesses to alter this. Energy efficiency gives greater environmental benefits but will also save you money in the long run.
There is advice and information available to minimise the risk of fuel poverty, plus how we can improve our energy efficiency at home.
