Energy efficiency is boosted by celebrity visit

February 17, 2011 by  

Students from three high schools around the Stoke-on-Trent area recently spent a day focusing on energy efficiency and the ways that this could be promoted in the area. The session was run by energy company E.ON and included an appearance from a special celebrity guest in the shape of TV presenter Philippa Forrester. Amongst the variety of activities on offer throughout the day, students took part in debates about energy efficiency and shared tips on how to raise awareness of how to save electricity and gas. One of the most effective ways of communicating high-level messages is banner printing. Stoke-on-Trent businesses have used banner printing to communicate sales messages for a number of years, but it is only recently that organisations have started to use banner printing to promote Stoke-on-Trent’s public service messages such as health care information and information about recycling.

The E.ON energy day saw around 90 pupils from local schools attending the energy efficiency awareness day and many of them confessed to leaving appliances like television sets or games consoles on standby, even when they are out of the house. The general consensus of the day was that local people are happy to take part in energy-saving initiatives, but there needs to be a greater awareness of how to save energy. Banner printing could be used to help Stoke-on-Trent residents to think twice about leaving things on standby, or it could even promote links to the E.ON or government websites that explain more about conserving electricity.
