Home Energy

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.

Haddenham Energy Efficient Homes Fair

On 1 October 2023, Haddenham Parish Council partnered with Buckinghamshire Community Energy to host Haddenham's first Energy-Efficient Homes Fair. 

Featuring a packed schedule of expert speakers and energy efficiency industry professionals, the fair provided residents with convenient access to straight-talking, personalised advice on how to slash their energy bills by making their homes more energy efficient and how to make simple, cost-effective shifts to low-carbon energy.

Following the success of the event, we hope to be able to bring another Energy-Efficient Homes Fair to Haddenham in 2024!
