Nick White has produced the most comprehensive guide on energy use and savings that I have come across. There are chapters on basic things like space heating, cooking and lighting, but more advanced aspects of the subject such as microgeneration and ground source heat pumps. Each topic is subdivided into tasks that can be carried out easily and cheaply through to more complex and costly ideas. And there are clear guides to issues like payback times, planning requirements and grant systems. Overall this book is a truly valuable addition to the growing library of information on energy issues. I would strongly recommend it to anyone with an interest in the subject. - - Ethical Pulse
