This week is the 14th annual energy saving week! Each day this week has an energy saving theme, from insulation on Tuesday to transport on Friday;
Monday 25th Launch day
Tuesday 26th Insulation
Wednesday 27th Generate your own energy
Thursday 28th Energy saving products
Friday 29th Transport
With the average household spending around £23 per week on fuel and power, around £1,200 per year, the Energy Saving Trust are offering a Q&A on their facebook page between 2-3pm every day to help you save energy. Some MP’s are also contributing to a blog, writing about how they have saved energy throughout the week, which can be found here.
Unfortunately there aren’t any events in Birmingham during the week, but there is a microgeneration event on Tuesday 26th October, at Lichfield Guildhall, and as it’s half term week, there will also be plenty of energy saving (and energy using!) activities for the children.
