Energy saving in leisure centres can not only help reduce the UK’s carbon emissions, but it can cut their energy bills and save them money. In fact, by making a 10% improvement in the management of energy use, UK leisure facilities could save up to £70 million each year and reduce carbon emissions by hundreds of thousands of tonnes.
In a typical sports centre, energy costs are second only to labour costs, accounting for as much as 30% of total running costs – a higher figure than in most other sectors.
This can account for 60% of your total energy costs. Implementation of energy efficient equipment could reduce your heating costs by up to a third.
On average, 25% of an organisation’s electricity costs come from lighting. You can cut these costs by up to a third while reducing your carbon footprint and improving the working environment for your staff.
