International Energy Saving Day is held each year on 11 November since 2008, when the international SPARE network initiated it to draw attention to the importance of saving energy.
Energy saving is very important for improving the environment in the place where we live, and on the whole planet. Energy saving allows us to obtain the necessary energy services and to conserve natural resources that are permanently burned for heat and electricity, polluting the environment. Saving energy saves money because we pay a lot for energy and saving helps to reduce the contribution of mankind in climate change. Energy efficiency plays an important role in the preservation of natural resources. Every year in many countries, on 11th of November there are practical actions on saving electricity, insulation of houses, seminars on energy saving technologies, information campaigns, exhibitions and much more. This year the International Day for energy saving will be a variety of activities - from the practical measures for insulation classes to street protests, which will bring together students, educators, environmental organizations, government officials and experts from research institutes. This holiday is a great opportunity to talk about energy saving and renewable energy sources.
