Energy efficiency measures can reduce an average household bill by £270 per year

Energy provides a host of useful services, but some methods of delivering those services use more energy than others. This measure of useful output for each unit of energy input is termed energy efficiency, and efforts to systematically improve efficiency are termed energy management. Improved efficiency can lower energy costs, and is consistently identified as one of the lowest-cost ways to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

You can explore various aspects of efficiency in this section, including a Lighting Guide, and the latest news and articles.
You can find resources on the UK's Energy Savings Opportunities Scheme (ESOS) and associated ESOS Lead Assessor registers.
You can also contact energy efficiency professionals via the Register of Professional Energy Consultants if you have a question about improving your company’s energy efficiency.
