About Us

Welcome to Confused About Energy!

Confused About Energy is a free impartial service to help you save money on your energy bills. Many of the campaigns and advice about energy focus on reducing your ‘carbon footprint’ or reducing ‘carbon dioxide emissions’ whereas what most people want to know is how they can really cut their energy costs.

Much of the available information regarding energy costs and energy savings is confusing and misleading. At Confused About Energy we aim to cut through the jargon and provide practical advice on how you can cut your energy bills.

For example many new consumer electrical products have energy ratings, however these give no indication of running costs and it does not necessarily follow that an A rated machine is cheaper to run than a B rated machine! Similarly there are many energy saving products now available, but how much money will they save you and are they worth the initial purchase cost? We help to answer these questions and more!

Hi, may I know where you get your data from and how do I cite as reference? I'm referring to the chart on energy consumption projection to year 2030
