Reducing your energy consumption – and saving on bills – doesn’t have to be complicated.

From leaving the heating on all day to relying on a screen saver to save energy – how many of these common energy saving myths have you fallen for?

Climate change means the UK is wetter than ever before. With severe weather warnings predicted now and for the foreseeable future, here’s how to guard against the increasingly likely risk of floods.

Making sure your home is properly insulated is one of the easiest ways to reduce your energy consumption, and it could knock a big chunk off your energy bills, too. Here’s how much you could stand to save.

Benefits of Solar Power: Free Electricity from the Sun

Long summer days are the perfect time to get the most out of solar panels. And over the last 25 years the cost of installing them has dramatically reduced. As a result, solar power is the world's fastest growing energy source.

Lighting accounts for 20% of all the energy consumption in the UK and there’s increasing talk about LED bulbs these days. So what is it about LEDs (Light-Emitting Diodes, if you want their full name!) that makes them such an all-round good option?

With carbon emissions from heat up for the second consecutive year in the UK, we urgently need alternative heating sources. So how do we switch from fossil fuel reliance to renewable energy heat?

Around 90% of customers in the UK are with one of the “Big Six” energy suppliers and a third of all customers are on a standard variable tariff. This is an indefinite contract and the most expensive way possible to buy the exact same gas and electricity that everyone else is using.

Switching to a green energy supplier is a great step you can take to tackle climate change, and it could benefit your budget too. It really couldn’t be simpler and with new advances in green energy innovation, there are plenty of providers to choose from. Here’s how.
