● Works included projects across 11 public buildings in the city, which have reduced annual CO2 emissions by 1,415 tonnes, saved £628,258 per year in energy costs, decreased overall power consumption by 4,07,272 kWh, and decreased gas consumption by 2,864,974 kWh.

As the lead technical partner, boosted by several local partnerships, Siemens entered discussions to investigate ways of improving the energy performance of the local authority’s buildings over a five-year period.
