EV and heat pumps - how much carbon can you save?
Are you thinking of replacing your car with an electric vehicle, or replacing your heating system with a heat pump (or alternative electric system) Would you like to know how much this would save in carbon emissions, and roughly how much it will cost you? Here are two new tools to help you. Click here for the car and here for the heating system. The calculator takes into account solar panels if your have them.
Carbon Emissions from Food Games
Do you know which foods are highest in carbon emissions? Test your
knowledge with my two new games - or rather new sets of cards for the
existing games: More or Less and Sorting game.

Guides for living with solar panels, heat pumps, MVHR
These guides are for people who have renewable energy systems or
low carbon heating already installed - they explain how to check they
are working, what maintenance they need, what to do to get the best
out of them. I also have a short presentation based on them that I have in November for CCF.
Research on energy saving and low carbon heating in the countryside.
CPRE have published the research we did on energy saving in rural buildings, especially off the gas grid. The report is 'Warm
and Green; Achieving affordable, low carbon energy while reducing the
impacts on the countryside. See also my blog post Warm
