Center for sustainable energy is a charity working to support people living in cold homes or having difficulties managing their energy costs. At any one time they have between 50 and 60 different projects under way - all of these helping people and communities to meet real needs for both environmentally sound and affordable energy services.

How can I get involved?

Do you have an interest in environmental issues and around a half day to spare every week? The Centre for Sustainable Energy is looking for dedicated and enthusiastic volunteers to help deliver home energy advice in South Gloucestershire. Ideally volunteers would have some knowledge of home energy efficiency but all interested applicants will be considered. You’ll also be given basic training on energy efficiency in the home and how to give the best advice. 

Looking to save a few pennies and do your bit for the environment? Check out a few of The Centre for Sustainable energy top tips

  • Electrical items continue to draw small amounts of electricity when left on standby. Switch TVs, computers and other equipment off at the plug and try not to leave mobile phones and laptops on charge unnecessarily.

  • Planning to replace your fridge, freezer, washing machine, dishwasher or kettle? Keep an eye out for the Energy Efficiency Recommended logo. Your fridge runs all day, every day and an A-rated appliance will save a lot of money.

  • Wondering how to cut your petrol consumption? Keep your speed down, drive smoothly and try not to keep junk in your boot!
