The index, which explores market developments and price movements in oil, gas, coal and electricity, was up 3 per cent compared with May, but its year-on-year increase of 57 per cent was the highest 12-month rise recorded since the index was developed.

Queen of Green: California Dreaming

Since that initial trip to Ireland for a girl's holiday. I saw first hand how much potential there was for SMEs and hotels to save money by implementing easy energy efficiency upgrades.
