Energy review of National Maritime Museum by Peace Marsh
Peace Marsh have been engaged by the National Maritime Museum, Greenwich to review their recently completed ESOS report. The objective being to filter or eliminate some of the recommendations that are not practical and prepare costs and payback figures on the energy saving products that can be installed into the museums operation and infrastructure.
The report recommends a new MicroCHP system which has a gas-engine that generates a constant 2 kWe of electricity whilst supplying 7.5 kWth of heated water. The report also recommended nearly 300 litres of EndoTherm and solar window film to protect exhibits from UV and excessive heat.
