Energy Hierarchy:

1. Energy Conservation – Save energy.

Insulate homes better

Switching off equipments when not in use

Using Occupancy and day light sensors

Turning down thermostats or wash temperatures

Keeping heating, hot water and cooling pipes free from scale

(Every 0.32mm of scale in the pipes  increases the energy usage by approximately 12 %)

2. Energy Efficiency – Improve energy efficiency

Raising public awareness

Use A-rated energy products

Low energy lighting /LED

District heating systems

 

3. Renewable, Sustainable Energy supplies

Wind offshore/onshore

PV Array

Micro generation

Tidal Power

Wave Power
