4. Home energy use

Home energy consumption (heating, hot water and electricity) up to 3,500 kWh.

Meeting this target would, on average in the UK, emit 0.9 tCO2e per capita per year.

Suggested monitoring:
Read energy meters at start and end of reporting year, and ideally each month to monitor progress and, if necessary, adjust behaviour
