Energy Efficiency is essential in helping both businesses and consumers to reduce their energy consumption. It is also central to helping the UK to deliver on the commitment it made by signing the Paris Agreement to reduce its greenhouse gas emissions by at least 80% by 2050 relative to 1990 levels.
There are several measures that can help business and consumers to improve their energy efficiency including fitting LED lightbulbs, utilising energy efficient heating and cooling systems, installed improved insulation, ensuring unused appliances are turned off.
While increasing energy efficiency often requires an upfront capital investment, the costs are typically recovered in the form of reduced energy costs making energy efficiency and attractive means for reducing carbon emissions. A partner company of Low Carbon, UrbanVolt, created an energy efficiency service called Light as a Service (LaaS®) in order to deliver energy efficiency projects for corporate clients for no capital cost.Back to Climate Change >
