All-Electric Bungalow!?

Not knowing where to start or what home energy technologies could work in their homes was a common question we received from visitors to our Fully Charged LIVE Home Energy Advice Team (H.E.A.T) stand this year.

So to help answer these questions, who better to ask than you, our audience?!

In this week’s episode, the first of a new and ongoing showcase series, we venture out with new presenter Emilie Romain to meet Alison who improved her EPC (Energy Performance Certificate) from a low C to a high B.

Find out which technologies were installed and the benefits they have delivered.

More than 70% of the costs of a typical household energy bill can be attributed to heating and hot water, so in this episode Imogen goes through what all the numbers mean and how they’re calculated.

We also share insights from an industry expert on what small measures everyone can make to keep their usage, and the costs, under control.

Is This £12,000 EV The Bargain Of The Century??

Is This £12,000 EV The Bargain Of The Century??

Hot on the heels of his hugely popular review of the standard Wuling Mini EV – China’s cheapest electric car – Elliot takes a look at its slightly posher sibling: the Mini EV Cabrio.

With much improved engineering, top-down driving thrills and a price still less than half that of the cheapest EV you can get in the UK, is this tiny roadster the bargain of the century??

Hydrogen – what is it good for?!

Hydrogen – what is it good for?!

Robert and Imogen decided to put Hydrogen to the test to see how it stacks up for a whole host of uses from fuel cell vehicles to heating and steel making.

Hydrogen – the answer to our clean energy needs or a terrible idea?! This energy source is as divisive as it is energy dense. In theory clean to use and produce, in reality often embroiled in the fossil fuel industry. However, surely it must be good for something?

Prepare yourself for low rent Phil and Holly….!
