What have you learned?

Which age category emits the most carbon dioxide

  • Under 30’s

  • 50-64

  • Over 70’s


In a house with no insulation, where is most of the heat lost?

  • Through the floor?

  • Through the walls?

  • Through the roof?


Through the walls – if possible, always insulate.


How much energy consumed by the average washing machine is used to heat the water?

  • Almost 90%

  • Almost 70%

  • Almost 60%


Which of these generates the least carbon emissions?

  • 6 minute electric shower

  • 6 minute shower from a gas fired combi boiler

  • 6 minute bath


Turning the thermostat down by 1º can cut how much from the average heating bill?

  • 5%

  • 10%

  • 15%


Is a kWh the same as a unit of gas?


How did the UK do?

Overall, we made an energy saving of

5.62%

And we saved…..

17.4 tonnes of CO²


What does that mean…?

1 tonne of CO2 =

3,001 miles in a car

5,791 miles on a bus

10,321 miles on a train

Or

57,000 cups of tea


2010 – 496 million tonnes of CO2

Average carbon footprint of someone in UK is 15 tonnes of CO2

30% from home energy use

Energy use in home accounts for 3.2 tonnes of CO2


1 broadleaf tree left to grow for 100 years will absorb in the region of 1 tonne of CO2


European results – Year 2


European results – Year 2


What has made the savings….

Most people just wanted to save money

Surprising increase in interest in environment

Substantial increase in number of people who now always:

  • turn lights off when they leave the room;

  • Turn the TV off at the wall;

  • only boil the amount of water needed; and

  • Set the thermostat lower.

    Has been significant increase in number who feel more informed about energy efficiency in their home and their appliances.


…..and so to our winners…

3rd place – Painswick Energy Savers

2nd place – Crossgates Wasters

2012/13 Energy Neighbourhood Winner
