Veolia extends energy efficiency to prehistoric power houses

14 august 2017

Global resource management company, Veolia, through its specialist subsidiary Veolia-Cynergin has resecured a 10 year energy performance contract (EPC) with the iconic Natural History Museum in London and two of the museum’s other sites.  Veolia-Cynergin has worked closely with the Natural History Museum since 2004 and the contract will enhance the current energy efficiency measures that have over-achieved against the guarantee in each and every year to date.

By helping the organisation in developing and implementing its Carbon Reduction Masterplan, Veolia-Cynergin will also contribute towards the Museum’s carbon targets. Technical solutions implemented so far cover combined heat and power (CHP) solutions for two museum sites, high efficiency lighting retrofits, boiler replacement and air conditioning plant and these measures have exceeded the guaranteed annual net savings of £54,000, after investment payback.
 
Commenting on this latest energy performance contract, Richard Kirkman, Chief Technology & Innovation Officer, Veolia UK and Ireland said, “By implementing the latest energy efficiency measures the Natural History Museum have been able to save on energy costs which have funded these major enhancements. In this way Energy Performance Contracts make good economic and environmental sense for those looking to reduce carbon emissions, boost sustainability and minimise capital outlay.”

London’s Natural History Museum is part of the 1851 Estate which also includes prestigious landmarks such as the Science Museum, the Victoria and Albert Museum, the Royal Albert Hall and Imperial College. Since the start of the energy projects Veolia-Cynergin has delivered self-funding, guaranteed-savings across three important sites within the 1851 Estate.
