Energy: Greenpeace publishes a guide to saving money on a daily basis

How do you reduce your bill at a time when energy prices are rising? What are the most energy consuming appliances in the home? Is it possible to reduce some items of expenses?

Energy saving guidePublished by the French organization Greenpeace, it answers all these questions by offering practical advice on individual and collective actions to reduce our energy consumption, and therefore our bills, while doing good for our planet.

In the form of “reminders”, the guide gives consumers various advice such as: surround the hot water tank with insulation wrap, use a kettle instead of a saucepan, wash clothes at 30 degrees or continue to outfit themselves with heat-insulating curtains. Lots of gestures that save hundreds of euros and kilograms of co22 annually.

On a collective level, the guide calls on consumers to act “at the level of their loved ones, their company or their city” by mobilizing against energy waste and supporting ambitious measures of sobriety and We provide, for example, the following: An investment plan for the restoration of poorly insulated housing [1] Or reduce or block ads and neon signs that consume more energy [2].

The French organization Greenpeace states that individual actions are necessary but not sufficient if they are not combined with ambitious public policies [3].

“This guide is a practical tool that allows you to save money, as energy prices rise, and act more systematically by going beyond environmental gestures. Contrary to popular belief, it shows that social crises, energy crises and climate are closely linked and that we will not meet the climate challenge without addressing the issue of distribution Efforts within society and social inequalities.comments Nicholas Nice, Director of the Energy Transition Campaign.
