Presentations – Sustainable Business Breakfast, Crawley

Businesses, from a range of industries, gathered in Crawley for a Sustainable Business Breakfast, focusing on energy efficient buildings.

Thermal Camera ImageNatasha Baum from G&S Energy explained how a thermal heat camera can be used to identify areas of heat loss from a building through such as insulation defects, air leakages and thermal bridging, as well as for investigative work such as detecting water leaks or faults in electrical and renewable energy systems.

James Moore from The Green Light Company UK provided an update on the latest energy efficient lighting solutions. He explained that when planning a project you need to first think about your objectives. For example, is payback period the top priority? Are you looking for increased lighting control? Do you need to minimise maintenance time?

He demonstrated a number of energy efficient lamps including LED replacements for high-bay sodium lighting, traditional candle bulbs and twin fluorescent tubes.

Nancy Higgins from East Sussex County Council shared how the local authority have been improving the energy efficiency of their properties. Remote control LED lighting has been installed at County Hall in Lewes and loft and cavity wall insulation at St. Mary’s School in Horam.
