Event: Sustainability Tour of Polesden Lacey, Dorking

“Because we have been working on environmental issues for some time I was surprised at how much useful practical information was new to me which I can now apply within my organization.”
Sheila Daly, University of Portsmouth

Event: Sustainability Tour of Polesden Lacey, Dorking

Part of the Utilise Plus events and grant funding programme.

3rd July 2018, 09:30 to 12:30, Polesden Lacey, Dorking.

Join us for a Sustainability Tour of the National Trust’s stunning Polesden Lacey, to see first-hand the energy saving measures they have implemented. Delegates will be treated to a behind-the-scenes tour of the house, originally used as a weekend party house by Edwardian socialites! In addition to this, delegates will get to see Polesden Lacey’s eco-friendly biomass boiler up close. The boiler burns wood chips and produces just one-tenth of the CO2 emissions that were produced by their previous oil-fired system. The Trust invested £500,000 to install the boiler, with the aim of reducing their use of fossil fuels for heat and electricity by 50% by 2020 – a target they’re on track to meet! Collette Hamilton, Premises & Compliance Officer, will discuss the changes they’ve made on-site and give an overview of their new Building Management System.

This event is part of the Utilise Plus programme and is fully-funded by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF). As such, only those from eligible organisations can attend.
