Energy Saving Marathon 2019
Throughout the month of February, both CEM Can Ricart and CEM Colom took part in the Energy Saving Marathon which aims to combat energy scarcity. 62 city teams, both cultural and sportive, district institutes and schools, took part in this initiative promoted by Barcelona City Council.
During this month, we instituted a campaign of awareness directed at members and staff in order to impact upon the reduction of energy consumption, and to carry out a range of activities at our technical facilities to minimise this consumption.
The objective was to reduce consumption of gas, water and electricity by 15 %, relative to which we can say that we achieved our stated aims, with an average reduction across both centres of 25%. This reduction contributed to the E3 project, whose purpose is to combat energy scarcity.
On the 25th of April at the termination of the Energy Saving Marathon, a cheque for the combined contribution of both facilities engaged in the Marathon, totalling €76.362, was duly issued.
We would like to thank you for your support and commitment to this project. For our part we will try to maintain many of the efforts carried out over the course of the coming year, in order to improve the efficiency and sustainability of the building and gradually turn our centres into energy efficient facilities which are respectful of the environment. We are committed to the idea that an accumulation of singular efforts makes big changes possible!
