Oil and Gas UK has launched a new educational campaign testing the knowledge of the nation about the offshore energy sector.
The trade body’s “Know Your Energy” project aims to increase awareness of the role of oil and gas in the UK, its emissions and work within the transition to lower-carbon fuels.
Part of that includes a series of videos where the trade body quizzed London bystanders on issues like the number of barrels the UK produces daily and how long you would need to ride a bike in order to power a TV for a week – watch below.
It has also produced an interactive quiz as part of the campaign, highlighting the industry’s Roadmap 2035, a response to government targets for net zero emissions.
Lead business adviser Harry Thorne said: “In the UK we are very lucky to have a secure, reliable and affordable supply of energy that helps power our every-day lives, however we don’t often stop and think about where that energy comes from and how it reaches us.
“In a changing world we all have a responsibility to reflect on how we can reduce our environmental impact. Roadmap 2035 is the UK oil and gas industry’s compelling blueprint to achieving net zero carbon emissions by 2050 in the UK and 2045 in Scotland.
“We hope our ‘Know Your Energy’ campaign will aide public understanding of the energy mix the nation relies on day to day and ultimately help us all become more thoughtful about our energy consumption.”
