On average, household appliances and equipment account for about one-third of household energy use and almost half of household greenhouse gas emissions. Of all appliances, the fridge/freezer and television are typically the highest individual electricity users.

easier for people to use energy more efficiently. It sets out a range of trials to test different ways of applying behavioural insights to overcome barriers to being more energy efficient.

This research will help to ensure that government policy on energy efficiency will be as effective as possible in motivating behavioural change. The average American or Canadian household in used about twenty times more than the typical Nigerian household, and two to three times more than a typical European home.

Install energy efficient windows. Today, more than half the nation’s homes use natural gas for heating. Most natural gas furnaces in the s and s were about 60 percent efficient.

That means they converted 60 percent of the energy in the natural gas into usable heat. New gas furnaces are designed to be up to 98 percent Size: 1MB.Select an energy-efficient heating systemthat doesn't use electricity.
