Crafts centre halves business electricity bills - 23/08/2013

A crafts centre in the south-west of England has announced that it is aiming to save thousands of pounds a year off its business electricity bills.

Taurus Crafts, which is located near Lydney, currently spends around £36,000 on gas and electricity every year, but wants to slash this amount by about half.

Matt Williams, senior business energy adviser at Severn Wye Energy Agency, which carried out an audit of the business, stated it is good to see an organisation willing to take action to reduce the amount of energy it is using, reports the Gloucestershire Echo.

"They've already made some really big savings from simply switching to low energy lighting," he said, adding: "They're starting to benefit now from all the work they've done – and they're still intending to do more."

Taurus Crafts acts as a base for as many as 15 small artisan businesses, including a pottery workshop, a manufacturer of handmade chocolate and jewellery makers.

Ingo Kresse, site manager at Taurus Crafts, explained that the people behind the business are also working to bring in a biomass boiler to cut energy usage further.

"It was encouraging to see from the second report what impact we have made just changing the lights. We are intending on carrying out several other suggestions in the report as part of our efforts to reduce our carbon footprint further," the manager said.

Mr Williams noted that Taurus Crafts is working hard to reduce the amount of energy it uses not just because there is a business case for doing it, but because they believe in it.

This comes just a short time after it was confirmed that £1 million is being spent by the Nottingham Playhouse, which marks its 50th anniversary in 2013, to improve energy efficiency at the location and cut its energy bills.

According to a report by the Nottingham Post, all the money saved from energy bills due to the action being taken will go towards youth theatre at the site.
