Compare The Market (those guys with the meerkats) have put together a fantastic interactive webpage full of energy saving tips for the home.  You can virtually visit each room in their house and get some great tips on how to save energy:

Compare the Market have also just introduced a rather fancy iPhone app, Snapt, whereby you can take a photo of your latest energy bill using your iPhone via the app.  Compare the Market will then work some crazy iPhone magic and through the wonders of the internet they will put together a list of companies that may be more competitively priced within 10 minutes.  You can then pick the energy company that you want to change to and then they’ll take care of  switching suppliers for you, all via the app.  They promise there’s no form filling or questionnaires, and they estimate up to 84% of households could save money by switching suppliers.  You can find out more about the app and/or download it here.

All of that just from a photo of a bil!  It’s a crazy world we live in!
