Energy Efficiency workshop set for Portadown

The Energy Efficiency Best Practice Programme is set it launch its ‘Essential skills and techniques for managing energy’ workshops in Portadown on December 4.

The workshops, which will target the process manufacturing industries, aim to help companies reduce energy use following the dual impacts of the Climate Change Levy (CCL) and rising energy costs.

The workshops will explain key energy management strategies, and provide information and practical techniques for minimising energy use. Participants will also take a ‘hands on’ approach, trouble-shooting real life case study material.

The workshops are aimed at anyone with responsibility for energy management and will enable them to get started on saving energy and money.

This year’s workshops will also take in Wrexham, Crawley, Durham, Wakefield, Cardiff and Burton-on-Trent, all in the new-year.
