Transport Energy facts

  • Driving 10km in a 3.0 litre jeep uses 1.75 times more energy than if you were to do the same distance in a 1.2 litre engine car.
  • Going for a walk/run for an hour instead of using the treadmill will save enough energy to make 32 slices of toast.
  • Walk or cycle instead of driving a short distance to work - it costs nothing and it's good for you too.
  • Car pool with colleagues if possible - even one journey a week that's shared will save energy and money - One round trip a month would save approximately 5%, one round trip a week saves approximately 20%. (Power of one)
