Energy efficiency

Make your community more energy efficient

Using energy more efficiently in our homes and public spaces is widely recognised as a vital part of addressing the problems of climate change, fuel poverty and national energy independence. It’s also a way to make homes and other buildings cheaper to run and more comfortable to use. 

Energy efficiency improvements range from changes to behaviour which cost nothing, through to expensive options like external solid wall insulation, with improvements like draught proofing, energy saving lighting and loft insulation between the two extremes.

There are hundreds of community groups across the country running energy projects which have been successfully engaging local people and making changes in their area.
