The saving was identified after TEAM’s Sigma Energy Viewer helped to identify a water leak in the main council building.
Abigail Lamberti, Energy Manager for Somerset County Council, said she was delighted with the savings. She said:
“Using the Sigma Energy Viewer has helped us to manage our energy costs and consumption. The Energy Viewer provides a key tool to help us deliver our energy policy objectives and has definitely helped me in my role as Energy Manager.”
“With an energy management team of three we can’t physically go out to each site and manage the operational day-to-day use of energy. So we needed a tool to help us delegate the energy responsibility to site level.”
Somerset County Council is one of the largest employers in Somerset and is committed to becoming the UK’s greenest council as it strives to cut the CO₂ emissions and reduce energy bills.
The council wanted a tool that would allow site managers to see at a glance how much energy they use, make comparisons and set targets – the Sigma Energy Viewer has helped provide just that!
