Shorter showers, cut down one car journey every week, and turn down the central heating thermostat will be some of the advice in a State awareness campaign to help households bring down energy costs.
The Taoiseach says it makes sense for people to try and conserve energy to deal with the cost of living increases.
A further package of measures aimed at addressing the high cost of living is expected to be considered by the Government next week.
Taoiseach Michael Martin says it's sensible for people to do what they can to reduce their energy use:
"Energy efficiency makes sense any time of the year - crisis or no crisis.
"Energy efficiency is an important issue, hence we're putting so much money into homes to enable people to adapt their homes to have greater energy efficiency, which makes less cost for people.
"That's the most sensible thing to do over time."
Currently, an increase in the carbon tax on home heating fuels is due to come into effect on May 1st.
The next increase to the carbon tax on transport fuels is scheduled for October 12th.
UCD Environmental Policy professor Dr Cara Augustenborg said those changes should be deferred until legislation ringfencing the proceeds for environmental measures is in place.
“I’m generally in favour of carbon tax because it gets people to change their behaviour,” she said.
“As they see the cost of carbon is going to increase, they may be invest in fossil-fuel-free technologies – but actually, because we are seeing that behavioural change now already in response to the energy crisis, I think it makes sense to defer this current carbon tax increase.
“Certainly, the commitment in the Programme For Government that the Government would legislate to allocate all of the carbon tax increases toward carbon tax measures hasn’t happened yet.
“I think until the government actually does their legislation and commits to allocating that money to carbon savings measures, it makes sense not to put an undue burden on citizens until they have lived up to their end of the bargain.”
