What We Do
The Haney Energy Saving group
The challenge to achieve these worthwhile goals goes hand-in-hand with our efforts to develop sustainable sources of energy and keep citizens warm and cosy over the winter.
Why we do it
The Primary Goal
of The Haney Group
is to encourage people to save energy every day. To attain this, it is important that we offer an impartial outlook founded on empirical evidence and equitably acceptable to individuals, commercial organizations and the government.
we aim to keep you informed as well as to encourage participation through email updates and social media.
The Haney Group
The Haney Energy Saving Group has worked with government, local authorities, businesses and third sector organizations as a partner, helping them how they can reduce carbon emissions, how to use water more sustainably and how to save money on energy bills.
Our activities include:
- Delivering or managing government programmes
- Testing low-carbon technology
- Certification and assurance for businesses and consumer goods
- developing models and tools.
Global temperature records show that the Earth has warmed by about 0.75°C in the last century, which might not sound dramatic; but if temperatures continue to rise at this rate, the effects on our environment could be disastrous. In the last 40 years alone, the average temperature of the Earth increased quite significantly.
How we can fight climate change
Using less energy will help fight climate change and save money as well. Our common task then is to lessen the use of fossil fuels such as coal, oil and gas to make the energy we need, thereby, mitigating climate change.
What is renewable energy?
Renewable energy does not simply cover the use of solar panels and wind turbines. It means energy from any source that is naturally replenished after its use. Often called 'renewables', 'green energy', 'sustainable energy' or 'microgeneration', the main sources of renewable energy for the home are:
- Sunlight energy
- Plants grown for fuel (biomass or biofuels
- Heat from the earth, the air or water sources
- The movement of water (known as hydro) and wind.
Various technologies are available for use to generate electricity or heat.
