You should not use your heating systems to keep hot, but so as not to be cold.
Set the thermostat to 20°C; this is the ideal temperature for your home. Every degree centigrade above this figure increases your consumption unnecessarily by 7%.
Use hot water only when necessary. Saving water means saving energy.
You can use renewable energy in your home energy supply, with equipment that harnesses energy from the sun, the air and biomass.
Try to use the best energy-saving invention of all.... "the switch". Make maximum use of natural light.
Buy domestic appliances with Class A++ energy labelling: they'll save you large quantities of energy and money.
Use your microwave instead of your regular oven: it saves over 60% energy and time.
Make maximum use of your washing machine's capacity and make sure it is always working at full load.
Turn off your computer altogether when you are going to be away from it for more than 30 minutes.
Electric vehicles are a very efficient alternative for road transport.
Around town, use public transport to get around and leave your car parked.
For medium and long-distance trips, public transport is up to 6 times more efficient than the car.
Biofuels such as bioethanol and biodiesel directly replace fossil-based petrol and diesel.
Biofuels are a form of renewable energy that reduces the consumption of petroleum derivatives and pollutant emissions.
