At the beginning of April this year oil prices reached their highest in nearly three years. As a result, the cost of raw materials will sky-rocket. As these costs rise, so will the amount that we will have to pay to heat of homes. However, The Energy Centre in York is trying to combat this.
The Energy Centre, Solarwall’s multi-award winning educational resource, is striving to provide useful and real-world advice for energy-conscious homeowners in the Yorkshire and Humber area.
Sue Lamb, Managing Director of Solarwall, offered her opinion on the matter: ‘Oil prices are increasing dramatically and it doesn’t look like it will stop anytime soon. The only way we can overcome this is by adapting to using renewable sources of energy, otherwise the cost of fuel will continue to rise and the damage to the environment will be considerable.’
Sue’s comments coincide with the recent visit of the UK’s Energy and Climate Change Secretary Chris Huhne to Saudi Arabia. Chris, who visited the Energy Centre in 2010, met with Saudi energy ministers on the 5th of April, stating: ‘Just as we work together to ensure oil market stability, the international community also needs to collaborate to speed up the deployment of clean energy technologies.’
Clean energy sources do not harm the environment and green energy sources are energy sources that are renewable.
The Energy Centre, based at Solarwall’s head office in Clifton, York, provides money-saving solutions such as loft and cavity wall insulation, as well as renewable technologies such as solar electricity and ground source heat pumps. These not only provide alternative means of energy but can also earn you an income thanks to the governments Feed-in-Tariff (FiT) and Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI).
New research has revealed that if every household in Britain that could install cavity wall insulation did so, the nation would slash CO2 emissions by around 4.6 million tonnes. That’s enough ?CO2 to fill 26 million double-decker buses. Doing this would save us over £800 million per year.
