The Engine Manufacturing Centre has continued its drive to support Jaguar Land Rover’s Destination Zero vision after unveiling an energy-saving project which also rubbed out nearly £50,000 of electricity costs.
EMC graduate Connor Sawar and a team of energy champions across the plant have been working on a project at the Wolverhampton facility whereby each area has committed to switching more lights off at the plant to save some of this energy.
The energy champion for each area at the plant set out to do an audit of what and where lights could be turned off whilst at the same time ensuring the lighting was at the correct level to operate safely.
And, as this work got underway, each area and significantly in the build halls, the champions optimised lighting to use it more efficiently. If that weren’t enough, the team is now looking at an opportunity to transfer LED lights across build halls.
With the help of our on-site facilities maintenance team Leadec, the opportunities for switching off lights started paying off with opportunities identified across the site.
A whopping £47,686 in savings will be realised over the next twelve months.
Connor said: “Through the hard work of all the energy champions and Leadec, they’ve managed to identify these great opportunities for energy and cost savings which will help the plant to operate more efficiently.”
This is a great example of RESET and our commitments to the RESET principles at the plant whereby this team have accepted that we all have a responsibility to be accountable for our actions and as we wouldn’t leave the lights on at home, we don’t in our plant either.
Well done to this team for their hard work to achieve this incredible Charge+ saving.
