When it comes to choosing energy reduction measures in our homes and businesses, we often start with things that take the least amount of effort. In “the trade” this is called the “low hanging fruit” as it’s the things we can pick off easily, without too much bother. An example of low hanging fruit is pressing the “off” button on the TV or PC Monitor rather than leaving it on standby. It’s easy enough to do, doesn’t cost anything and saves a bit of energy.

The Carbon Trust (who work with closely with our Low Carbon Alliance), have produced a neat slide show to highlight how businesses are absolutely vital to emissions reduction in the UK.
