Energy advice

energy adviceProvide energy advice on energy efficiency and renewable energy to your friends!

Communities and individuals found that it was much easier to talk to friends, neighbours and people in the wider community about energy issues if they were able to respond to people’s concerns about energy consumption and energy prices by providing immediate energy advice, or signposting people to sources of trusted information.

In response to this, Dorset community groups produced a range of energy advice videos, and the Centre for Sustainable Energy provided the SEACS project with a large set of advice leaflets. These are available for you to watch and download.
