Spotlight: Energy schemes

Saving money through energy efficiency schemes

Why change?

What is your Trust’s current annual energy cost?

Lord Carter’s report, among other things, focuses on the need to drive down the cost of energy bills. Energy schemes and other
effective energy management systems focused on energy and operational efficiency are seen as key.

  • Reduce your carbon footprint
