Display, the perfect complement to monitoring in Leicester

The Leicester Display scheme has seen the certification of 90 City Council buildings so far including offices, schools, community buildings and the town hall. The certificate of performance is only the first step in a programme of engaging with the building users to help them understand not only how the building is performing in relation to energy, water and carbon use but also what they can actively do to reduce this over a period of time.

Leicester is complementing its Display project with real time monitoring and utilising real time data to influence behavioural change.

This Display certificate is installed in the public areas of Leicester Central Library and clearly shows the results of the building so far. The building manager has already received an energy management manual with details on how to maximise the reduction in energy and water in this building and a visit from the energy officer from the City Council continues to stimulate improvements.

The City Council energy management team has set up an energy loan scheme to finance the costs of improving the building heating, lighting and water systems in order to ensure that better standards are achieved over the coming years. The loan scheme is financed from the local authority’s own capital programme through prudential borrowing, and is matched by a 50% grant from the Carbon Trust. The "loan" is set to be fully recovered from savings over a period of four years and this money is then reinvested in other buildings.

The use of the Display label and the Leicester City Council Intelligent Metering scheme ensure that awareness, real savings and behavioural change are being obtained.
