Bosses at Green Energy UK have analysed the energy usage of the average Brit and guess what, it’s going up! They say, however, thanks to new technologies and a better understanding of energy saving measures, consumers are now much better equipped to tackle the issue of wasted energy head on.
The electricity company, which buys and sells 100 per cent sustainable energy, has pulled all its thinking into one handy visual to show exactly where our household energy is going. CEO Doug Stewart, explains further and uses the car industry as an analogy of how consumers the nation over could better consider energy use.
Doug says: “The media tells us that petrol sales have decreased by 20 per cent over the past five years and it comes as no real surprise to us. Why? Increasing fuel prices and more fuel efficient cars; that’s why! Replace cars with homes and it is clear to see how this trend could be echoed in the utilities industry.”
