ABSTRACT
The article reports on over 1.4 million tonnes in carbon savings claimed by energy firms by sending energy displays to clients under the Carbon Emissions Reduction Target (CERT) scheme. Energy firms need to enhance home energy efficiency under CERT. Energy displays were included in CERT in July 2009 by the Department of Energy and Climate Change. Andrew Warren, director of the Association for the Conservation of Energy, believes that energy displays can encourage energy efficiency.
