Electricity Consumption

electricity-consumption-graphicElectricity is mainly produced by burning fossil fuels (coal, gas and oil), which contribute to global warming and acid rain. The amount of electricity consumed is therefore an indicator of how sustainable we are.

The average domestic and industrial user in Coventry has increased its consumption by more than 5% between 1994/5 and 1997/8. This increase is equivalent to every user in the city putting on an electric fire every day for an additional 2 hours. Many organisations have plans to reduce electricity consumption or are looking at using renewable energy in order to save money and to lower their carbon dioxide emissions.
