Leading scientists are united in the belief that climate change is real and that action is required now
Household fuel bills continue to rise
Our reliance on imported energy from abroad is not sustainable
The most practical and cost-effective way to address these issues is to reduce our energy consumption. Saving energy – or not wasting it – makes total sense.
What it means to lead affordable, low-carbon lifestyles:
The UK is committed to achieving an 80 per cent reduction in carbon emissions by 2050. To achieve these goals we need radical change. Society needs a major re-think. We are committed to making it easier for people to change their behaviour and mind-set through practical solutions.
We put people at the centre of what we do and empower millions to make fully-informed decisions, not forgetting the crucial role played by business and charities in helping them.
We engage with more than 5,000,000 people every year on energy efficiency and with more than 2,000 active community groups on energy-saving projects.
Since the Energy Saving Trust was formed we’ve helped households to save
Our advice service helped householders to install more than 800,000 energy-saving measures in one year alone (to April 2012). See EST in the news.
We are working on pioneering research to help find practical solutions towards a low-energy life.

The Energy Saving Trust was established on the back of the Rio Earth Summit in 1992. In our blog we list 20 things that we think are important steps forward in energy efficiency and renewable energy.
We seek partners who are committed to helping everyone to reduce their impact on climate change and dependency on carbon-emitting fuel. Become a key player in gathering new insight for public good.
