Carbon Co-op

Impact Tracker survey

Carbon Co-op Impact Tracker

Carbon Co-op was established as a way for members to take collective action on climate change in their homes and communities - by sharing knowledge and expertise and working together we believe we can make a difference.

To understand our impact, we’ve designed this simple tracker tool. It helps you quickly understand the carbon footprint of your home’s energy use and over time track your carbon descent.

Anonymising and aggregating this data means we can quantify our collective impact and link it to our energy saving activities. This helps us better understand and improve our services, but also allows us to influence those in power, to strengthen support for collective, grassroots action on climate change.

Thank you for contributing and if you have any questions about the tool or the data we collect, please email

Before getting started there are a couple of things you will need:

1. Your annual energy consumption (or a reasonable estimate) both of electricity and gas, if your house uses gas.

If you have had a smart meter for a year you might be able to access this through our PowerShaper monitor service.

Otherwise take a look at recent energy bills for your past consumption or a projected annual consumption figure.

If you use solid fuels to heat your house, such as wood or coal, please also have an estimate of the amount of those you used.

2. The floor area of your home.

Dimensions from plans, or your own simple measurements are best. Check out our guide for measuring the floor area of your home.

Or if your home has been bought or sold since 2007, or has an EPC we should be able to automatically find this information.

3. If you have an electric vehicle (EV) that you charge at home you will need your annual mileage.

You might be able to find this on your MOT document. If you do not have the exact figures an estimate may be used instead. If you are unable to find your MOT certificate you can access the information for free online.

Once you have these you are ready to get started!
