About The Event
- How can I reduce my fuel bills?
- What is a heat pump and how do I install one?
- What are the best ways to insulate my home?
- What sources of energy should Islington be using more of?
This Saturday, we're exploring all these questions and more in an exciting Greening Our Homes event, where we will be exploring insulation, saving energy and alternatives to gas central heating and more.
Residential emissions currently account for a whopping 19 per cent of the annual total of the UK’s carbon emissions; 26 million homes need upgrading with energy efficiency measures and low carbon heating systems if we are to reach its net zero carbon emissions target by 2050.
