Carbon Trust helps GE Aviation Wales save £1.4 million on energy bills

GE Aviation Wales has seen a saving of £1.4 million on its energy bills since it made a commitment to improving its energy efficiency with the help of Carbon Trust Wales. The company, which specialises in servicing aircraft engines, invested £200,000 into energy saving projects since its initial survey with Carbon Trust Wales in 2006 and has since benefitted from savings seven times over that figure. Carbon Trust Wales advised the company on industrial process improvements, such as servicing its air compressors and identifying all air leaks, as well as optimising everyday energy use. GE Aviation Wales was inspired to take action after visiting InBev brewery who had already worked with Carbon Trust Wales to improve its energy efficiency. Hywel Evans, Maintenance Manager at GE Aviation Wales, said: “Visiting InBev brewery gave us an insight into what other companies are doing to improve energy efficiency and inspired us to create our very own Green Sky Team. “Our Green Sky Team is made up of volunteers from across the business who expressed an interest in sustainability. We have regular meetings to share ideas, drive new initiatives and review progress. “By encouraging employee participation our sustainability ethos has filtered throughout the company. This way all of our employees have an increased awareness of energy consumption and are taking responsibility for their energy use which in turn is making savings for the company. “We are really pleased to have made such significant savings. Following a recent survey by Carbon Trust Wales we are hoping we will be able to make further improvements.”
