I've said this a few times, usually after a beer or two and struggled to get my audience to understand it......

Hi
But isn't that slightly offset by those using airsource heat pumps for heating and hot water?
Every time I walk up to my mates house there is a blast of cold air from his.

On a personal level i think when Autumn/Winter comes the most important thing is to give the body time to acclimatise by putting on clothing etc and not reaching for the CH thermostat. And of corse vice versa.

Appallingly written article. Wtf is 14000MW every second? It did not correspond to the rate of change of load.

The New York state authorities should enforce energy efficiency standards in excess of US Federal standards.

IMO, New Yorkers are not the nicest people from the US. Let them cook themselves.
