The ´Review of Carbon Savings from Residential Energy Efficiency´ for the Committee on Climate Change found the following key findings for Reducing UK’s carbon footprint in our homes.
Major cost effective energy efficiency measures:
Biggest potential for emissions savings:
These have combined savings of around 14Mt (28% of total).
Biggest potential for energy savings:
Appliance replacement (with A++/A+++ energy rating) also has good potential for reducing CO2 emissions.
Therefore the most effective ways we can reduce UK’s carbon footprint in our homes (figures from Review):
How can you reduce your home´s carbon footprint?
