What a waster
Here’s a surprise. According to a report released this week, Britons are the biggest energy wasters in Europe. Well, imagine that.
However, it’s not all bad news. ICM Research, on behalf of the Energy Saving Trust, examined the country’s energy habits and compiled a UK Energy Wasters’ League, highlighting how the various regions compare.
Turns out, people in the South West are responsible for an average of 21 energy wasting actions each week, compared to a national average of 32.
In fact, we top the Energy Wasters’ League (which sounds like a bad thing but is actually Very Good Indeed). Hooray for us.
The report goes on to add that this fantastic result is entirely attributable to the efforts of the PRSD website (not strictly true).
