Barry Promotes Energy Awareness and Action

The Barry site is showing its commitment to sustainability – by supporting energy saving initiatives.

Lighting the way to energy savings

At home, it’s simple to turn off the lights to save energy when you leave a room. It’s a bit more complicated at the 160-acre Barry site, but the energy savings provide significant payback for the effort. The site has installed long-life lamps that use time-out controls in low occupancy areas and switch off unnecessary lighting during daylight hours. The reduction in energy use is accomplished without compromising safety. Significant energy savings are achieved while assuring that all lighting needs are addressed.

Sharing knowledge to make a difference

In conjunction with the UK’s Carbon Trust (a government-backed organization working with companies to help them reduce carbon emissions), the Barry site supported an energy awareness event for employees, businesses and government representatives. The Energy Fair helped raise awareness about the environmental impact of CO2 emissions on climate change and showed participants how they could make a difference by saving energy.

Warm water for little hands

The Barry site is helping some young neighbors save energy. A donation made to the Bute Cottage Nursery School contributed to the school’s installation of solar panels to heat water. The panels are capable of heating enough water to wash 80 pairs of little hands at the same time! The school is pleased about saving electricity and equally delighted that the youngsters are learning about energy conservation.
