ABSTRACT
The article reports on the plan of the British National Trust to reduce its fossil fuel use for heat and electricity by 50% by 2020 from a 2008 baseline. Renewable energy sources will be used and energy efficiency will be improved to achieve the target. The energy consumption of the trust reached 86,193 megawatt hour (MWh) in 2008. Standards of isolation and energy efficiency for heating and lighting will be enhanced by the trust.
