Eco Energy & Products

In Australia we can reduce our power consumption considerably using more power efficient devices. Products that help reduce or monitor power consumption are featured here alongside innovative products and ideas that help us benefit by living more efficiently.

By understanding where our energy is being used we can greatly reduce our reliance on grid based power. In 2009 Google made a public statement at the International Climate Change Conference in Copenhagen. Quite simply it was, “Governments across the world should ensure people have real-time access to their home energy information.”.

With a raised awareness of power consumption and by using more efficient options to replace older products we can embrace new ideas to replace old habits, without having a major impact on our lives.

Here are some interesting eco products and ideas:
