Pop-up advice centre to cut energy bills
December 13, 2012
A pop-up advice centre offering energy-saving tips will open on Saturday at noon.
Thames Valley Vision has been awarded £30 million by Government energy watchdog, Ofgem, to discover how energy usage can be reduced, how large companies can monitor their energy usage and how to store energy at street level.
Thames Valley Vision is urging bill payers to talk to them at the pop-up shop underneath the escalators in Charles Square.
Allen Cook, head of engineering at Bracknell & Wokingham College, who has been working with the initiative, said: “The project team carried out a full investigation into our building with specialist engineers, and were then able to make some excellent suggestions as to how we could cut down our energy bill.
“Many of these have been implemented as they had no initial outlay costs, saving the college money at a time when all businesses need to be vigilant.”
Mr Cook added: “It is nice to know that Bracknell & Wokingham College has played its part in what will become a national blueprint for the future.”
