Bracknell Forest Council
Cutting carbon emissions as part of the fight against climate change should be a key priority for local authorities
Savacontrols are a cost effective and faster way to achieve Cutting carbon emissions
Bracknell Forest Council made a commitment to tackle the causes and effects of climate change. This was one by adopting the Nottingham Declaration on Climate Change. They refreshed their commitment to action on climate change by becoming a signatory to Climate Local. The Local Government Association’s successor to the Nottingham Declaration on Climate Change.
Bracknell Forest Council was selected, amidst strong competition, to take part in this ambitious programme. Bracknell Forest Council partnered with the Carbon Trust on this programme in order to realise vast carbon and cost savings. This Carbon Management Plan commits the council to a target of reducing CO2 by 25% by 2012 and underpins potential financial savings to the council of around £4.4 million
Savacontrols were installed at the Downshire Golf club, Time Square and The Depot. Savawatt offer a range of of energy saving, intelligent, fully integrated controls. In the case of the council we installed to the existing air conditioning systems on site. The benefit of retro fitting is to save on the expensive costs of an upgrade and prolong the life of existing working equipment.
