Electrical courses could offer insight into green issues

Individuals who have studied - or who are currently undertaking - electrical courses could be among those who scored highly on a recent test from the Energy Saving Trust.

The organisation has published a Green IQ test in order to establish how much Brits know about environmental issues and found that 68 per cent of the 6,000 people questioned answered their queries correctly.

However, the body noted that British kids are top of the list when it comes to energy-wasting activities, such as leaving a light on in one room, when they are actually in another.

"Our research clearly shows the British public has the knowledge, however they don't seem to act on it. As a nation we need to put theory in to practice," commented Energy Saving Trust chief executive Philip Sellwood.

Those who have completed electrical courses may be able to offer families some hints and tips on how to enhance their green credentials.

The organisation's research has been published to coincide with Energy Saving Week, which takes place between October 19th and 25th and themes such as warmer homes and insulation are due to be explored over the course of the event.
