Big Energy Saving Week is a National campaign to help people cut their energy bills and get the financial support and advice they're entitled to. Citizens Advice, the Energy Saving Trust and the Department of Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy have partnered together for this campaign, focussing on raising public awareness of how to switch to the best energy suppliers or tariffs, accessing discounts, and making homes more energy efficient.
Stalls will be set up in local towns, supermarkets, and community hubs, informing those of us who aren't aware of the support available and working with local charities to deliver advice services.
Why talk about it?
With a lot of us now working from home due to the pandemic, keeping our energy bills down is more important than ever this year. Also, you may actually be eligible for tax relief from working at home! Sharing our advice and tips will help us all save money and energy together, as well as saving our planet!
Did you know that you could save up to £60 a year by reducing your thermostat just 1 degree lower? You could also save money and energy by washing clothes at 30 degrees, cooking in bulk, unplugging your laptop and turning off a few lightbulbs. Though these may be minor and trivial, they really do help in the long run! A lot more information and advice like this will be available to you during this event.
Big Energy Saving Week is a great opportunity to join, start, or lead the conversation. It’s for anyone who wants to learn how to better manage their own energy consumption, or any person or organisation working to help save our planet by reducing our energy usage.
We post the request ahead of time if we are actively looking for expert profiles to support a national day so our journalists have more choice. Therefore, you will have a few days to create your profile at least.
There is a free media pass option you can register called 'Starter Media Pass'. Or, as a new member, you can secure a 'Backstage Media Pass' free for 30 days and get featured higher in any search results! All profiles are available for our journalists to find and when you add your keywords relating to this national event, you will show up in the search results.
Yes of course, if you feel the media interview isn't right for you, you can turn down the interview. However, please be reassured that all our journalists can search by specific keyword and read your profile in full before they contact you, so it should be a perfect media match.
Yes, if you have a Backstage or Access All Areas Media Pass you can also get full access to all of our media training and journalist interviews, plus all of our templates, tips, and tools to secure ongoing PR success.
