Compliant: Getting Behind Big Energy Saving Week 

This week marks the 8th ‘Big Energy Saving Week’ running from the 18th to the 24th of January. It is a national campaign to promote making simple changes to our daily activities that can help us save energy, money and benefits the environment. 

The campaign is delivered by Citizens Advice, the Energy Saving Trust and the Department of Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy together in partnership. 

‘Big Energy Saving Week’ focuses on raising public awareness of how to switch energy supplier or tariff to get the best deal, access discounts and make homes energy efficient.  

What it means for businesses 

But it’s not just about what we can do in our homes to be more energy conscious. The Government has set out historic plans to clean up our energy system and keep bills affordable for businesses.  

These ambitious new plans will support up to 220,000 British jobs, and will promote cost-effective decarbonisation, allowing businesses to cut carbon where it is cheapest to do so, promoting innovation and growth for UK businesses. 

A recent article from NEPIC highlights at 6 projects across the UK are to receive a share of £8 million in government funding as part of a drive to create the world’s first net-zero emissions industrial zone by 2040. 

It seems that everyone is getting behind the plan for clean growth!
