Eden Project looking for energy-efficient boost

Eden Project looking for energy-efficient boost
Cornwall's Eden Project is hoping to save around £320,000 by running a number of energy efficient projects.

The tourist attraction hopes to cut CO2 emissions by 25 percent over the next two years and is installing new boilers and lighting to help it achieve the target.

A loan has come from the Carbon Trust in order to pay for the improvements, with the initiative costing in the region of £580,000.

"We're in a position now where we can 'walk the talk' in a way we've never done in terms of our technical efficiency. While renewables are very important, the most critical tool in the box is a focused commitment to reducing consumption," Matt Hastings, energy manager at the facility, told the BBC.

The Eden Project is ten years old and was built in a disused clay mine in order to provide an educational look at environmental projects, conservation and regeneration.ADNFCR-1235-ID-800494297-ADNFCR
