First Direct's 10 Energy Saving tips... pretty simple and accessible...

This is a free event in May about the new renewable heat incentive - including a tour of a biomass project near London Bridge...

May be of interest...

I read in the Guardian last week (ok, so it may be wrong) that emissions from domestic properties are no lower than they were 20 years ago.  The explanation was that altho some insulation has been done, it's not enough and we're using more electricity for computers and plasma screens.  Also, more people are living alone.  Emissions from industry have fallen, but that's largely to do with the recession.  Read more.

As I'm enjoying my annual "Frugal February" I'm going to borrow an Energy Meter from Kilburn Library and see if I can reduce my emissions from electricity use.  I'll let you know how I get on.
