Energy saving idea of the week

Invite staff and/or volunteers to feedback ideas for saving energy and choose at least one to implement.

Staff and volunteers know the building best and will probably have lots of suggestions for energy saving changes you could make.

Inviting the workforce to suggest ways the museum could reduce energy use will help to raise awareness of your green improvements and give staff and volunteers ownership over the changes made.

Energy saving ideas can include switching some rows of lights off when it’s bright, making use of natural light, ensuring IT equipment is switched off or prohibiting the use of portable electric heaters unless room temperature is below 18oC.

Don’t forget to tell everyone about the impact of this change!
