Efficiency is the key
We're creating new solutions to meet the new demands for energy. We're broadening our offer, while reducing our footprint
We know how to cut your bills
Using a mix of energy efficient equipment and simple changes in behaviour, the average UK household could cut its energy used by 25% - and with it its bill and CO2 emissions. This is what our remarkable Green Streets experiment has found.
Keeping the lights on
The energy efficiency products provided by British Gas in 2008 included the distribution of 48 million low-energy light bulbs, which equated to a lifetime carbon saving of 17.87 million tonnes of CO2.
A sustainable North America
There are many good reasons for reducing demand for energy, including financial and environmental savings. Direct Energy is involved in schemes with public authorities, private companies and citizens that are helping to make significant savings.
We're making a difference
By taking concerted action to reduce out own carbon footprint we achieved a 7.23% cut in UK office energy consumption in one year - with some offices saving up to 10%.
