Postcards – the results are in!

Written by CarbonCulture Team from UK Parliament on 5th March 2014

We asked for your ideas and questions about energy at work, and you certainly stepped up to the challenge! 

 A total of 743 ideas and questions were submitted from across the estate. The graphic below shows the breakdown of the data. The areas generating the most input were lighting (27% of ideas and questions) and heating/air conditioning (24%). Many people also had things to say about the buildings, annunciators and a range of other issues. 

The Environment Team is now going through your suggestions in detail, in combination with technical information about the running of the estate. Some of your questions have already been answered in this blog, and more will come every week! As mentioned by one postcard author, heating and air conditioning can be a particularly tough balance because different people feel comfortable at different temperatures. We’ll be asking you for more information on the situation in your area soon. 

We will also be working with you to help make some of your ideas a reality. Some great ideas were raised about providing more education, information and signs to help everyone save energy around the estate, and we’re looking into these among the other suggestions. There will be lots of ways to get involved through the platform, which can take as little (or as much!) time as you would like to contribute. We want you to help shape the programme to make sure it meets your needs.
