Green Knowledge Cafe #2 resources:

HMC Lighting Replacement – A presentation of the approximate savings, reduction in energy usage, costs and CO2 emissions the Heritage Motor Centre will be making by changing their lighting. It is a powerpoint (.pptx) file downloadable by clicking the link above.

Rugby Lighting Replacement – A presentation of the approximate savings, reduction in energy usage, costs and CO2 emissions the Rugby Art Gallery and Museum will be making by changing their lighting. It is a powerpoint (.pptx) file downloadable by clicking the link above.

Green Museums Energy Tracking Spreadsheet – This is the energy tracking spreadsheet we recommended the museums use in order to monitor their energy usage and bills. It was created by the East Midlands Green Museums and you can download the excel spreadsheet (.xlsx) from the link above.

Changing Lights – Savings calculators – These are two energy saving calculators for your own use. They are in Excel format (.xlsx) and they can be downloaded from the link above. The file contains two spreadsheets; the first one calculates the savings you would be making by reducing the number of lights in a given area or room while the second one calculates the savings you would be making if you were installing motion sensors in a specific room. The calculators can also be downloaded from the do-it-yourself calculators subpage.
