“The workshop has certainly opened my eyes into the hidden costs with regards to our utilities.”
Glenn Carter, Ingenious Design, Eastbourne
Presentations – Sustainable Business Breakfast, Crawley
Businesses, from a range of industries, gathered in Crawley for a Sustainable Business Breakfast, focusing on energy efficient buildings.
Natasha 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.
We’ll be in Burgess Hill on the 19th March 2014, 08:00 to 10:00, looking at renewable energy. Speakers will include Shoreham Port who have installed a 90 kW solar PV system. The full event programme will be released shortly.
