The Natural History Museum has renewed a 10-year Energy Performance Contract (EPC) with Veolia after it saved hundreds of thousands of pounds on its energy bills.
Around 1,500 tonnes of carbon emissions have also been offset annually since its partnership with the waste management firm’s specialist subsidiary Veolia-Cynergin in 2004.
The company helped the museum with efficient lighting upgrades, boiler replacement, air conditioning plant and combined heat and power (CHP) solutions for two sites.
Veolia claims these measures exceeded the guaranteed annual savings of £54,000 after investment payback.
Richard Kirkman, Chief Technology & Innovation Office at Veolia UK & Ireland said: “By implementing the latest energy efficiency measures, the Natural History Museum has been able to save on energy costs which have funded these major enhancements.
“In this way, Energy Performance Contracts make good economic and environmental sense for those looking to reduce carbon emissions, boost sustainability and minimise capital outlay.”
