The present business landscape, though decidedly short on good news, seems to present some favorable opportunities in several sectors. One such sector is in green businesses.  Environmentally friendly businesses.  And it certainly doesn't hurt to get in early, before the field gets too crowded.

Two posts where I've discussed these opportunities, with the help of green future experts and gurus like Tom Friedman,  are:

Design Your Saving Energy Plan

At least once in a while and most likely when the utility bills are delivered people seriously consider finding a good energy plan that might be helpful in assisting them with implementing some techniques that will result efficient in what concerns reducing the amount of energy consumed in their household.

There are some basic things that anybody can check and fix, if necessary, that can contribute to improving the overall energy saving in a home, which include, for example, identifying any possible cavities in the walls. You should know that wall cavities are actually the prime result of 33% of the overall heat lost in your house, which is why an insulation of the walls might constitute one of the most cost efficient manners to save energy at home. It is relevant to mention that a well-performed cavity wall insulation will have as a direct result a cool house during summer and a warm indoor atmosphere during winter.

Moreover, it is also recommended to check your boiler and its functionality and more than that it would be really good to try to carry out this action during summer time, so that in case you find anything wrong with it you have the time to fix it. Studies show that old boilers are one of the main causes of domestic energy lost. As a consequence, a new and energy efficient boiler might actually result into a real method of saving up to a third of the amount that you are currently paying for your heating bills.

In case you decide you need to purchase any sort of new appliances for your home, make sure you buy only the electrical appliances that have the energy saving logo on them. You should be able to find it on most of the appliances, starting even with light bulbs.

All these small and apparently insignificant details are sure to make a difference in the overall energy consumption of your household, so do not hesitate to keep them in mind!
