5. Home energy supply

The equivalent of 100% home energy supply from very low carbon sources.
Depending on personal circumstances, this will include some combination of these two energy supply measures: 

  • Grid energy supply (electricity and/or gas) from a high quality 100% renewable energy supplier;
  • Electricity and/or heat supplied from local renewable sources, for example your own solar photovoltaic panels together with a heat pump.

We suggest different actions to reach this target dependent on whether you are a tenant or a home-owner.

Meeting this target would, on average in the UK, reduce the emissions of energy use in target 4 from 0.9 tCO2e to 0.15 tCO2e per capita per year, once lifecycle emissions have been accounted for.
