The UK has managed to achieve a significant milestone in the ongoing struggle to tackle the climate emergency by achieving a 3.6% reduction in greenhouse gas emissions from 2018, a recent news report has been able to suggest.
A recent report by the Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy (BEIS) studying territorial emissions for the year 2019 shows in total, greenhouse gas emissions for 2019 were provisionally 3.6% lower than previous year.
The dip in carbon dioxide emissions is thought to be a result of more energy being generated from renewables and electricity than from coal plants.
BEIS also notes a 2.8% fall in emissions from transport, which fell for the second year – despite this reduction, it still accounted for 34% of the carbon dioxide emissions in 2019.
As the UK works towards reaching net zero emissions by 2050 in order to tackle climate change, BEIS noted: “The 2019 annual average temperature was warmer than the long-term 1981-2010 average by 0.5°C”.
Improving Buildings’ Energy Efficiency – Yet Another Way to Tackle the Climate Emergency
The HeatingSave Building Management System (BMS) will cut your energy usage by 20% to 30% with its energy management control, as its internal microprocessor constantly calculates and improves the efficiency and savings of your central heating system.
Using HeatingSave, simply choose the room temperature and the hot water you want, and when, and HeatingSave does the rest. It works with all central heating systems – oil, gas or coal – and links up with a PC to produce reports and graphs to fashion a powerful and
complete energy management system.
Furthermore, the BMS system includes comprehensive access control and lighting control features, as well as an advanced smartphone app that grants you extensive control functions and comprehensive alerts at the touch of a button.
The system is backed by the Energy Savings Trust.
