Written for Canterbury Christ Church University.


A 2c increase in office temperature creates enough CO2 in a year to fill a hot air balloon

A chiller door left open for 30 minutes a day wastes enough energy in a year to power a lighthouse for nearly 4 days

A computer left on overnight for a year creates enough CO2 to fill a double-decker bus

Air conditioning an office for 1 extra hour a day uses enough energy in a month to power a TV for over a year

Does saving energy turn you off

Office lights left on overnight use enough energy in a year to heat a home for almost 5 months
