Time to Invest in Energy Efficiency

17 199 views

Europe is a far way from reaching the energy reduction targets it set for 2020. Making little changes would have a huge impact not only on their carbon footprint but on our wallets as well: were Europeans to make the changes to reduce our energy use by the 2020 goal of 20 percent, we would save around 78 million euro per year. What’s more, the technology around to help individuals, businesses and governments cut back their energy usage is already freely available. This clip introduces the methods Carrefour supermarkets, a Spanish couple and a Hungarian public authority have used to cut back on energy use and save money.
