What is The Energy Saving Trust?

The Energy Saving Trust (EST) is a non-profit organisation whose activities are jointly sponsored by the British Government and the private sector. Its purpose is to contribute to the fight against climate change by promoting energy conservation and sustainable use of energy, thereby helping to reduce the UKs carbon footprint.

The Trust was established in the wake of the 1992 Earth summit in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, with the goal of achieving a 20% reduction in UK CO2 emissions by 2010 based on 1990 levels.

What the trust does

The Energy Saving Trust has a wide range of activities and responsibilities. These include consumer level advice on recycling and conservation, fleet management guidance, advice for industry, community initiatives, policy analysis, and research.

Last year the Energy Saving Trust provided advice for around one million UK households on how to become more energy efficient.

The Energy Saving Trusts evaluation and accreditation of domestic appliances has helped push electrical manufacturers to achieve better and better efficiencies. The aim is to ensure that manufacturers can display the Trusts famous blue sticker on their latest model.

What you can do

Purchasing a domestic appliance that has been awarded Energy Saving Trust accreditation will save you energy, money and the environment its simply the smarter choice. Armagh Electrical.com has a special Buy Greener section on this website that only features appliances that have achieved this accreditation. Alternatively, visit Dalzells of Markethill.

Small changes can make a big difference!

Even the smallest changes can make a big difference when we act together. Simply choosing one appliance over another can save you money and by default, energy helping to protect our environment.

Here are some facts from the Energy Saving Trust that show how having the right information about products and taking action together can make a difference to the environment:

  • A new efficient washing machine will use 30% less energy, saving you 11 a year and the environment 45Kg in CO2 emissions.
  • A modern A rated dishwasher will use 40% less energy than an average ten-year- old model, saving you 23 a year and the environment 90kg in CO2 emissions.
  • Modern refrigeration uses 60% less energy than an average ten-year-old appliance, which translates to 39 and 142Kg of CO2 savings a year for a fridge freezer.
  • If we all committed to replacing our inefficient appliances in the UK 43 million of them in all! together wed save enough energy to fully power two million homes for an entire year. Quite a thought...
