So what might happen as we improve the energy efficiency of Louth's houses? There are various possibilities:1. We allow our houses to be warmer, more comfortable, saving no money on our heating bills.2. We enjoy lower heating bills by spending the money on other things.3. We save the money in the bank.4. We stuff the money under the mattress.

Posted By: biffvernon@NigelFor each of the four reasons I give, the quantity doesn't matter for the purpose of my argument, only the direction of change.1 - Same fuel burnt = Warmer house. No carbon emission saved by definition.2 - Save money on energy bills - spend the money on other stuff. Broadly speaking, all expenditure, once it has flowed through the economy, translates into carbon emissions. This only changes if and when the link between GDP and fossil fuel use changes by, say, reducing the carbon intensity of the economy. It is happening but very slowly and not in the control of households.
