Tuesday 26 March • Activity Space 2, The Clore Learning Centre, Museum of London
As part of the Accreditation Plus training programme this workshop will focus on how museums can care for their collections and buildings whilst also responding energy efficiency agendas.
Cultural heritage is sensitive to the rising costs and significance of energy, which will affect how buildings and collections are cared for. That is why the Collections Trust has joined with the Museum of London to present Energy Efficiency: Better Business and Collections.
This special half-day workshop is aimed at staff and volunteers from London’s non-National museums, with just 30 free delegate places available. Delegates will learn how to succeed in the face of growing commercial, regulatory and funding-body demands on energy efficiency and carbon reduction, in practical and interactive sessions led by an expert workshop leader.
Casimir Iwaszkiewicz has more than twenty years’ experience in providing leading-edge strategic and project related advice on energy efficiency, renewable energy and sustainability. He believes that by being prepared, energy efficiency should be good for business and collections.
In the first session of the two-part workshop, Casimir will set the scene with a timeline of external drivers for energy efficiency, and describe a range of energy scenarios and their potential impact on buildings and collections. He will also identify potential solutions, including organisational and technical options and funding sources, and provide examples of the state-of-the-art in energy efficiency, both within the sector and by others.
In the second session, in a facilitated workshop, attendees will be able to share their experience of energy efficiency to date, discuss potential risks to their own organisations and collections from existing levels of energy usage, identify opportunities for efficiency in their operation, and identify how to accelerate their uptake.
The session will summarise key opportunities and identify any high level cross-institutional barriers to the uptake of efficiency measures. To provide maximum value for their attendance, Attendees will receive a copy of the seminar presentation and a simple method to baseline their energy performance and identify what should be prioritised.
