Energy efficient technology in the Antarctic
Significant opportunities exist to reduce energy consumption by improving the performance of lighting, refrigeration and heating systems. BAS has been installing energy efficiency controls where possible, both in Antarctica and Cambridge, and has to date implemented electronic motor controls for refrigeration, motion sensors on lights to ensure they switch off when the room is empty and replaced lightbulbs with energy efficient alternatives.
