The use of energy in the home is the largest source of greenhouse gas emissions from Australian households.
The average household's energy use is responsible for about eight tonnes of carbon dioxide (CO2), the main greenhouse gas, per year.
Many of these emissions can be abated through more efficient use of energy in our homes.
