Date: 27 Oct 2022 Take control of your energy use this winter The Sustainable Energy Authority of Ireland (SEAI) has launched its Home Energy Plan as part of the Reduce Your Use campaign. It provides practical advice to help reduce home energy bills this winter and provides a roadmap of big-impact actions we can take at no or low cost. By reducing the amount of energy used in the home, we can permanently reduce the impact of rising energy costs on our household budget which will help both our pockets and reduce our climate impact. The Home Energy Plan will focus on three key areas where people use the most energy – home heating, electricity and transport – and spotlights big-impact actions people can take at no or low cost that will help reduce their energy bills. Commenting on the campaign, Tom Halpin, Head of Communications in SEAI said, “We can all see how the ongoing conflict in Ukraine is affecting energy prices across Europe. It’s no different in Ireland. The Home Energy Plan will help inform people about their energy use and share advice on how they can reduce their use. In the wider context of rising energy bills and the urgency of climate action, people are actively looking for ways to make an impact. Much of our energy use is habitual and behavioural changes can make a huge difference.” SEAI is encouraging people to sign up to their Home Energy Plan to help reduce the impact of rising energy costs on their household budget.
