Today sees the launch of Energy Saving Week 2019 in Northern Ireland. This annual event, now in its 19th year looks to shine a spotlight on the importance of energy efficiency at home to reduce carbon emissions and make savings on energy bills.
The awareness raising week is running between 18 and 22 November 2019, with Energy Saving Trust sharing simple and effective tips and brings organisations from across Northern Ireland together to help as many households save energy, reduce their bills and limit the impact of our energy use on the environment.
Angela Gracey-Roger of the Energy Saving Trust said:
“Energy Saving Week aims to support and enhance people’s understanding of home energy efficiency. Many of the tips we share throughout the week are both affordable and effective ways to save both energy and money at home all year round.
Living in a cold home can have an effect on both a person’s physical and mental health, but making simple yet effective home energy improvements can have a significant impact in a person’s life, physically, mentally and financially.”
Further household energy efficiency information and advice can be found on the Energy Saving Trust website - www.energysavingtrust.org.uk
Energy Saving Week is supported by the following organisations: NIHE, NEA NI, Bryson Energy, Consumer Council NI, Phoenix Natural Gas, SGN Natural Gas, firmus energy, Power NI, NIFHA, and Choice Housing.
