As the global population continues to grow, so too does the impact of human activity on the environment. As citizens of the world, we must take responsibility for the stewardship of our planet. This stewardship involves understanding the environmental impact of our actions and developing strategies to reduce our carbon footprint.
One way to achieve this is through surveying our energy consumption and identifying opportunities to reduce our dependence on fossil fuels and maximising our energy efficiency. We undertake this with diligence on all our properties and can provide consultancy to interested parties who wish to undertake similar enterprises.
By making small changes, we can reduce our energy consumption and help to create a more sustainable future. For example, switching from traditional halogen light bulbs to LED bulbs can reduce energy consumption by up to 90%. Installing solar panels or an EV charger can also reduce our dependence on non–renewable energy sources. Other systems we use are infrared heating, a variety of insulation methods, and secondary glazing.
