1 Micro + Our New Wireless Electricity Monitor

2 Background Domestic energy use in the UK is responsible for around 30% of the UK’s carbon emissions. Domestic energy use represents 58% of an average individual’s overall energy consumption, the other key areas being driving and flying. This equates to around 6 tonnes of carbon dioxide per home per annum on average. There is an urgent need to ensure that homes that are built from now on are sustainable and the Government wants all new homes to be ‘Zero Carbon’ by However, around 90% of homes that will be standing in 2020 have already been built. It is existing homes that are the issue. One in four homes were built before the Second World War and one in five before the First World War. Many are in a poor state with a low level of energy performance and high costs. Poor insulation means that £1 in every £3 currently spent heating UK homes is wasted. Making the existing stock as energy efficient as possible has been the priority.

3 The Market: Electricity Since 1990, domestic energy consumption in the UK has increased by 18% A recent research report 1 has shown that in the UK there is a high awareness of climate change issue, but a significant disconnect between this attitude and changes in behaviour. According to a recent survey 2 Britons are the worst energy wasters in Europe with 71% admitting that the leave electrical appliances on standby. Lights and appliances account for 23% of household energy use and is increasing by 2% per annum. Consumers have more appliances and they are growing in size e.g. televisions, fridges 72% of household energy is used for space and water heating but many people are unaware of hot to use these appliances efficiently, for instance a boiler is more efficient if kept at a constant 56°C) or how to operate timers and thermostats. The largest increase in domestic consumption in recent years has been for space heating, up 26% between 1990 and The average temperature inside UK homes is rising. It was 13°C in 1970, 16°C in 1990 and 18°C in It takes 50% more energy to heat a house to 18°C than at 1970 levels. Consumers often site appliances in inappropriate places, e.g. cookers next to fridges, which increases energy consumption as appliances have to work harder The number of households is increasing, exacerbating energy demand Householders regularly admit that they do not turn off appliances. A recent survey states that 25% regularly leave on lights in an empty room and 36% leave TVs on standby. [EST: Green Barometer.

4 UK Market The potential for the electricity monitor market is vast. One for every home in the UK The UK currently has approximately 25,350,000 homes Sales of electricity monitors to date is c. 3.6 million, less than 14% penetration to date The drive towards more eco friendly homes is slow but increasing in pace: Loft insulation: 28% of UK homes do not have loft insulation : which equates to 7.1 million homes ; penetration of 72% ( 18,250,000 million households with loft insulation cp electricity monitors Cavity wall insulation: 27% have not installed cavity wall insulation: which equates to 6.8 million homes

5 UK Market The cost of electricity –All major utilities have increased their cost of electricity between 5.1% - 16% 1 –Average household Electricity bill is currently £1127 per annum 1 Cost of living outstrips wage rises 2 –Petrol & Diesel prices continue to escalate –Food Price Increases –Interest rates at a all time low Householders are seeking ways to save money 1 Electricity Prices.org.uk (Britsh Gas Tariff) 2 Daily Finance.co.uk 14 th July 2011
