Energy efficiency in schools can be achieved through conservation and technology. Catering and food equipment are a major energy consumption area. Most school budgets go on purchasing new expensive energy efficient refrigeration equipment, but does is this the best way to reduce costs?
The alternative solution is to retro fit SavaWatt motor energy controls to the existing equipment. In most cases this is a cheaper option that gives greater savings. Torriano School is a community primary school in Kentish Town, London and is benefiting from the use of savawatt controls.
