Workshop 2, Practical Guidance to Saving Energy in Leisure and Cultural Facilities
10th October, 15:00-16:30 (90 mins)
This session aims to provide you with practical guidance and support to implement energy-saving measures across both leisure and cultural facilities. You will get an understanding of the typical composition of energy usage in a range of buildings and the broad range of different interventions which might improve efficiency and reduce carbon emissions. We will provide average paybacks for a variety of different interventions with typical costs. We will provide information on the funding opportunities across England, Wales and Scotland with eligibility criteria; we will also explore potential finance options for those not eligible for grant funding. You will gain an understanding of how similar organisations have reduced their Scope 1 & 2 emissions with a variety of case studies and best practice resources across the leisure and cultural sectors.
If you are a small charity and cost is a barrier, please get in touch with Jennifer at Community Leisure UK and they can discuss access on a 1:1 basis.
