New campaign launches to conserve energy

4th March 2020

A new campaign launches today to highlight the £650m of ‘invisible’ waste that we as a nation could save by upgrading our outdated energy system.

As part of the campaign, research amongst 4,000 Brits has revealed that more than half of Brits (52%) would be more inclined to try to reduce the energy they use if they could see it being wasted. Plastic is the number one waste concern for the nation (71%), with just 36% recognising the importance of energy waste despite the huge problems, according to research by Smart Energy GB.

Aston spoke to Robert Cheesewright from Smart Energy GB to discuss the issues and how they can be tackled effectively to make sure we all do our bit to be energy efficient, reducing our energy waste and the recent news that more than 12 million homes fall below the C grade on Energy Performance Certificates (EPCs), according to data analysed by the BBC, meaning householders spend more on energy bills and pump tonnes more CO2 into the atmosphere than necessary.
