About this book

We're all using more and more energy: charging up our mobiles and laptops, keeping our rooms so hot that we walk around in short sleeves in the winter, or leaving lights on all day and night whether we are using the rooms or not. But the consequences of using so much so freely is causing our climate to change, and our energy bills to rise.

There are many small things we can do which cost nothing but can make a difference. This book gives you over 100 tips for saving energy, money and the environment, ideas for taking it a bit further with solar installation or wind turbines, plus facts about our energy use and its impact on our climate.
