Energy is a huge part of our everyday life. In the United Kingdom alone we use hundreds of thousands of pounds worth each minute, 24 hours a day, every day of the year. Our abundant use of energy and the energy choices we make each day affect our economy, environment, and society.
You must make a choice concerning your daily practices that will reduce the amount of energy that is consumed in your practice. This must be clearly illustrated in a poster, including the choice made, types of energy conserved, approximate amount of energy conserved, and how you are going to implement your choice (including materials required to do so). Keep in mind all of the requirements of the project when making your choice, as well as what you have learned in class about energy and its uses. You should strive to come up with ideas that are unique to your lifestyles and more in depth than just turning off the lights.
