How to read the figures:
Left-top: % Share of fuel input (TJ) by type (liquid, solid, gaseous, biomass and other fuels) into 1A1a public electricity and heat production.
Left-bottom: Implied emission factor for each fuel above (tCO2 / TJ), taken from EEA (2009)
Right-top: Average efficiency of transformation in EU-27.
Numerator = 101109 Output from district heating plants + 101121 Output from public thermal power stations
Denominator = 101009 Input to district heating plants + 101021 Input to public thermal power stations
Right-bottom: % Share of CO2 emissions by fuel type (liquid, solid, gaseous, biomass and other fuels into 1A1a public electricity and heat production)

Home gardens can add immensely to the biodiversity of cities and towns.
They provide cover, feeding and commuting routes for wildlife including hedgehogs, badgers, birds and butterflies. If you have a garden, increase its value by planting berry-bearing trees and flowering plants. Rowan, bird cherry and dandelion, among others, can serve as food and shelter to a wide range of invertebrates.
