4 Thank you

5 What have you learned? Which age category emits the most carbon dioxide Under 30’s 50-64 Over 70’s

6 In a house with no insulation, where is most of the heat lost? Through the floor? Through the walls? Through the roof?

7 Through the walls – if possible, always insulate.

8 How much energy consumed by the average washing machine is used to heat the water? Almost 90% Almost 70% Almost 60%

9 Which of these generates the least carbon emissions? 6 minute electric shower 6 minute shower from a gas fired combi boiler 6 minute bath

10 Turning the thermostat down by 1º can cut how much from the average heating bill? 5% 10% 15%

11 Is a kWh the same as a unit of gas?

12 How did the UK do? Overall, we made an energy saving of 5.62% And we saved….. 17.4 tonnes of CO²

13 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

14 2010 – 496 million tonnes of CO2 30% from home energy use Average carbon footprint of someone in UK is 15 tonnes of CO2 Energy use in home accounts for 3.2 tonnes of CO2

15 1 broadleaf tree left to grow for 100 years will absorb in the region of 1 tonne of CO2

18 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.
