The topic of global energy efficiency has become a priority for governments around the world in recent years. It is now apparent that our planet’s natural resources are running out and that we all need to adapt to the impacts of climate change. To help sustain the economy and take care of the earth, we need to look further at energy efficiency. It’s important that we understand the impact we have and what we can all do to help control and reducing energy consumption.

As well as saving money, being energy efficient is of course, great for the environment. Over time this will enhance our quality of life and sustain our planet. The Paris Agreement, signed by almost 200 countries, has set in place targets to help reduce energy consumption. You can read more on the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) pact below.

In this infographic we’ll show you some of the targets set and what they mean. Politics and government plans can be complicated, but we’ve broken things down in this piece to give a better understanding of an issue that’s vital to every person on the planet.

We’ll then show how countries across the world are currently progressing and how they compare with each other. If you’re wondering what the UK has done to combat energy consumption, we’ll give you some information on that too! We’ll also give you some handy energy saving tips on what you can do in your own home to help increase your energy efficiency and play your part in the fight against global warming.

How Can You Help?

Global energy consumption for the transport industry has risen considerably over recent decades. A small way you can contribute to helping the environment is by ordering your heating oil in plenty of time. This means you can opt for the economy delivery service. The economy service gives fuel suppliers time to plan routes efficiently, saving both transportation costs and helping the environment. They pass this saving on to you by way of a lower price for your heating oil.
