New Heating and Cooling Guidance can help members cut energy demand and carbon emissions

With heating and cooling accounting for the majority of TEC members’ electricity and gas consumption, managing these issues can be key to decarbonisation. 

TEC’s Heating and Cooling Guidance provides insights and suggestions about how best to control the temperatures that buildings are heated to and cooled to for maximum cost and carbon benefits.  

Dr John Brenton, Head of Carbon Reduction Solutions at TEC, said: “Our survey provided some helpful insight into how our members approach heating and cooling. We have coupled this knowledge sharing with helpful suggestions in our Heating and Cooling Guidance which aims to support members on their decarbonisation journeys.” 

 TEC’s Heating and Cooling Guidance, provides the following tips in terms of best practice: 

  • If you do not have a heating and cooling policy it is worth investing the time to produce one – and reap the benefits of significant cost, energy and carbon savings. 
  • Consider who needs to agree to and champion a policy . 
  • Produce a statement on why you need a policy. This may cite comfort, consumption, cost, carbon and climate. 

 You can find more detailed recommendations in TEC’s Heating and Cooling Guidance in the member area of our website. My Documents – TEC
