"On a visit to Fiji over a year ago……I saw how climate change has already begun to impact the lives of local people. One of them told me, and these are words I will never forget."
"For you Europeans, climate change is a problem for the future. For us it is a problem of everyday survival."
The Archbishop of Canterbury, in his presidential address to the Anglican Consultative Council.
This pilot is now complete. We will update this page shortly with next steps and future plans.
There are many benefits to carrying out a comprehensive energy survey of your Church to provide advice on the main energy & cost saving opportunities. An energy survey will include an assessment of the feasibility of energy efficiency measures and renewable energy technologies, in order to reduce a building's energy consumption and carbon footprint.
Each building presents different opportunities, but typical energy savings can be around 20% of current consumption. Each opportunity will be itemised in the Energy Survey Report, with recommendations including what investment is required, annual cost savings, carbon savings and financial return on investment period.
*The subsidy for this pilot comes from Total Gas & Power, our principal energy suppliers.
