The Wilton Centre management team is exploring a whole series of measures aimed at conserving energy. Activities completed or in progress include: The work on the T Block ventilation systems has been reported in previous editions of the Wilton News and the predicted savings on power and heating have now been confirmed by analysis of the recent meter readings. It is planned to proceed with similar modification work on other laboratory blocks.
Earlier in the year, the ancient dishwasher in Catering was replaced with a new energy efficient model and early indications are that this too will result in significant energy savings. Most of the Wilton Centre toilets have been fitted with sensors to activate lighting and further communal rooms in the Centre will be fitted with such sensors.
