Saving Energy

Make Energy Reduction Your New Years Resolution

Energy Reduction

If we all make a small saving it will make a large difference.

No, that will make a small difference 🙂

Small changes could only make large changes is we thought that Chaos theory could be applied. In that case “making a small saving may make a large difference” could have been used.

For a more rational assessment of energy policy you can look at David MacKays book, in which he uses numbers to examine the problems of supplying sustainable energy to the UK. The book can be found online at http://www.withouthotair.com/.

One way to save a little energy may be to use LED lighting as developed by Prof. Colin Humphreys. Which you can read about in the EPSRC press release
Low–Cost LEDs to Slash Household Electric Bills
. This can save energy in cases where household heating is supplied by Gas, or perhaps by heat exchangers (tungsten filament light bulbs also provide heating which may or may not be regarded as wasteful).

  1. Maybe edf energy are happy for everyone to make just a small saving, since their income relies on people using as much energy as possible?

    I cant help feeling all this climate change stuff is rather like telling someone who eats 20 mars bars a day that by eating just one less each day, he will lose weight. No, he will just get fatter marginally less rapidly.

  2. not only using LEDs but just using traditional bulbs in a more directed manner (i.e. less light being thrown upwards) would help.
