What have you learned

What have you learned?

Which age category emits the most carbon dioxide

  • Under 30’s

  • 50-64

  • Over 70’s


Energy neighbourhoods big day out

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

  • Through the floor?

  • Through the walls?

  • Through the roof?


Energy neighbourhoods big day out

Through the walls – if possible, always insulate.

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

  • Almost 70%

  • Almost 60%

Which of these generates the least carbon emissions?

  • 6 minute electric shower

Is a kWh the same as a unit of gas?


How did the uk do

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

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


Energy neighbourhoods big day out

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


Energy neighbourhoods big day out

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


European results year 21

European results – Year 2


What has made the savings

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.
