Useful Links

www.transitioncambridge.org/energy- has FAQ pages on how to save energy and generate renewable energy at home - such as solar PV panels, heat pumps, insulation and running a condensing boiler. Transition Cambridge is an organisation of volunteers and I have helped to author these pages.

www.youreko.com - a website for comparing energy consumption of consumer appliances you can buy such as washing machines, refrigerators and so on.

A personal energy usage calculator  showing you how much energy you are using for heating, cooking, appliances, transport and so on.


- which is based on data from Sustainable Energy without with Hot Air by David MacKay

www.ecogeek.org - OK it's for geeks but I have geek leanings. If you like to read about up and coming technology which can help with environmental sustainability this is the place to start.

2050 Pathways calculator from DECC - a tool to help you understand what choices we need to make in terms of energy supply and reducing demand in order to meet our greenhouse gas reduction commitments.
