Let’s keep saving energy !

The #SaveEnergyToday initiative was launched during the European Sustainable Energy Week in June 2015 #EUSEW15 by the Coalition for Energy Savings in partnership with the European Commission’s DG Energy. The Coalition for Energy Savings calls on the EU to commit itself to a 40% energy saving target by 2030, and to step up policies, measures and investments in order to stop energy waste and tap the considerable energy savings potentials.

The #SaveEnergyToday photo contest aimed at sharing energy-saving ideas from citizens from all around Europe. I decided to take part in it. I made eight pictures and a few weeks later, I won the first prize !

Prize #SaveEnergyToday

Housing and transport constitute major sources of energy consumption. I am convinced that energy saving starts at home. For me, this initiative was an opportunity to explain to my kids why it is so important to save energy, and I used the little playmobil figures to get them involved and we had a lot of fun!

The winning picture, Let the sunshine in! Daylight is free”,  is about electricity saving. Other pictures were about good habits such as: do not leave the freezer door open for too long, the importance of taking short showers, the use of a plug adaptor, encourage biking… You can have a look at the pictures here.

I would like to congratulate the organisers for the great initiative and to thank them for the wonderful prize (a tablet and a solar charger!) and the nice reception they organised at the EHI (Association of the European Heating Industry) headquarters. The atmosphere was very friendly and I received a very “warm” welcome!

Thank you so much! And let’s keep saving energy!

Responsible consuming starts at home!

We often worry about the world that we are leaving to future generations. Our daily actions can have an impact, not only on our environment, but also on our children, who are so eager to follow our steps.

I would like to share with you the pictures I’ve made with my kids for the #SaveEnergyToday photo contest organised by the Coalition for Energy Savings in partnership with the European Commission’s DG Energy:
