May flew by on community! It looks like we can expect some long overdue sunshine - and some more great discussions! - as we head into the summer months.
In May, we had 842 new posts and 126 new topics. We also welcomed 148 new contributors to the community!
Here’s your May community round-up:
- There’s a lot happening in the energy industry at the minute, so we’ve started weekly Energy news round-ups via our @Weekly_News_bot. You can find our 28t May update here and our 21st May update here
- GeorgieS_at_Bulb posted an illustrated guide to understanding your Bulb energy statements!
- We love to see our members using community to help each other out. Shout out to @RichyB for helping @kathrynwilson-7 out with her moving query.
- Our very own @Lou_at_Bulb took over the Bulb Instagram to share a day in the life of an Energy Specialist
- @Mel_at_Bulb shared an interesting piece about electric vehicles and the circular economy, and @norman7115 linked to this video by Fully Charged about lithium ion batteries and potential issues for recyclability
- Following the news on 19th May that no new fossil fuel boilers should be sold from 2025 in order for the world to achieve net-zero emissions, heat pumps are being discussed as a long-term alternative - so we’ve been diving into this topic. Thanks to @robstamp787 for contributing to the discussion here.
- Watch out for topics from Team Bulb titled Changing the way we heat our homes . For example:
- @cara_at_bulb provided some more detail about the financial incentives available for heat pumps
- @Mel_at_Bulb covered ground source heat pumps and air source heat pumps - thanks to @izzyhunt and @stevefoster for your contributions!
And coming up in June:
- We’re posting a quiz for World Environment Day on 5th June
- We’ll be providing a checklist for what to do when you’re moving home
- As we’re on our way out of lockdown, we’re looking at your options for a low-carbon holiday - whether you’re flying or staycationing
- And more heat pump content, covering topics such as trusted installers, non-domestic heat pumps, and how heat pumps can also be used to cool your home
