“Energy Saving in Custodial Environments – Challenges, Opportunities and Delivery”
Stewart Grew, Energy Services Manager, Government Facility Services Ltd & Steve Tilling, National Sales Manager – Custodial, Designplan Lighting
According to “The State of the Estate” report (2017/18), the Ministry of Justice (MoJ) is the second largest government department in terms of size and estate running costs. With the Government committed to a 2050 net-zero carbon target, energy saving has become vitally important.
Steve Tilling from Designplan Lighting and Stewart Grew from Government Facility Services Ltd will discuss the ways energy can be saved.
Sustainable energy sources will be assessed and the main areas of energy use in prisons, including heating and lighting, will be discussed. The opportunities to save energy will be examined, both from a manufacturer’s and a facility manager’s perspective. The biggest challenges to saving energy will be analysed including the varied age and condition of the prison estate. The session will conclude with a look at what the future holds for the delivery of the MoJ’s energy strategy.
