Salix are pleased to be attending the Museums + Heritage show to share with museum professionals how interest-free funding available to the public sector can be used to reduce their energy costs.
Salix was set up in 2004 as a non-profit organization and is funded by the Department for Energy and Climate Change, the Department for Education, the Welsh Government, the Scottish Government and the Higher Education Funding Council for England. Salix has been working with the public sector in England, Scotland and Wales for over ten years and has helped to fund over £420 million for energy efficiency projects, helping clients to save £108 million in annual energy costs. Salix has financed over 13,000 projects, which are projected to save more than 570,000 tonnes of carbon annually.
Salix can work with publically funded museums in England to improve their internal environment and save money by reducing their energy bills. Salix can fund over 120 different energy efficient technologies and popular technologies for museums include upgrading to more efficient LED lighting, heating upgrades and improving heating controls and zoning. These technologies not only reduces energy costs but can improve the environment for exhibitions and visitors.
