Breaking News!!! A new BBC article has reported that UK homes are “getting more hungry for electricity”.

Mark Kinver, Environment reporter for BBC News writes:

“UK homes are consuming much more electricity than previously estimated, a report described as the most detailed of its kind has suggested.

For example, it found that up to 16% of households’ energy bills are spent on devices left on standby.

It is estimated that domestic energy use accounts for more than a quarter of the nation’s CO2 emissions.”

Rosalyn Foreman, energy adviser for the EST says:

“The fridge and the freezer in a house are the real energy eaters. They are the ones that can make a real difference, and it is easier to target the consumer on buying a better appliance.

“It is areas like this where you can make a difference and influence people.”
