Home energy use is one of the largest contributors towards the UK's carbon emissions. In 2022, the residential sector emitted 56.4 MtCO2, accounting for 17.0% of all carbon dioxide emissions in the UK. That figure covers everything from the electricity we use to power televisions and other electronic devices, as well as the fuel we use to heat our water and cook with – but in cold climates, such as here in the UK, the majority of a house's energy budget goes on heating.
With the cost of energy bills having skyrocketed in recent years, not only will reducing the energy you use in your home help lower your carbon footprint but it could help save you money too.
We've put together a range of resources to help residents reduce both the cost of their energy bills and their carbon emissions.
