We will initially focus on home energy consumption as this is one of the largest contributors to climate change. By better understanding our current consumption and areas that we can more easily (and effectively) change, we have the potential to significantly reduce our energy usage.
- Self Assessment of CO2 emissions
- Our results, the Beech 2021 Home Energy CO2 Self Assessment
- Thermal Survey (please note that the Thermal Survey is due to finish by the end of February 2022)
- Home Energy Action
- We want to help each householder establish their current CO2 emissions. This is your baseline to measure progression to zero. You can calculate your 2021 CO2 emissions using this link to ‘Self-Assessment tools’
- We think it’s useful for you to compare your emissions to other houses like yours so we want to share the ‘Best in Class’ and average numbers by ‘age group’ (eg houses less than 10 years old)
- We also believe it’s important to track our progress towards zero so we want to check with you every year and share the data on improvement.
- With your permission we would also like to share HOW you make improvement ie what works.
- We will run a Thermal Survey so each householder can get a current assessment of their property’s insulation and areas of heat loss.
- We will organise a workshop with energy specialists so that you can use your Thermal Survey to make plans to improve your insulation. For example improving:
- Draught proofing
- Windows and or doors
