Energy Efficiency Week 2021

4th – 8th October 2021

Energy Efficiency Week is timed to coincide with the shortening of the days and our need for more heating in our homes and offices. This is often a big contributor to our carbon footprint but there is lots we can do to help mitigate this impact.
 
This year’s Clever Climate Actions theme brings you three levels of suggested actions you can take each day during Energy Efficiency Week. These have been selected to help keep you cosy as the winter draws in, as well as saving you energy and reducing carbon emissions. Have a look at the three suggestions for action each day below, starting with the easiest level. 
 
  • Take a 10 minute break to watch one of our Teatime Talks.  
  • Book your 15 minute online Energy Clinic with one of our advisors. 
  • Use the Clever Climate Actions Posters to raise awareness in your building. 
  • Get the kids involved in our Art Competition.
  • Take the Cosy Survey. Your answers will help inform our campaign.
