Step in favour of efficiency and sustainability at CEM Can Ricart.
We are increasingly aware of the finitude of the energy resources available to us, which is changing the culture of energy consumption, and conducing us to follow the best path towards responsible and sustainable consumption.
At CEM Can Ricart we have already been working with thermal solar panels for years, helping us to heat the water for the swimming pool, which means, we are taking advantage of solar energy to heat the water circuits.
We made the change a while ago too from conventional lighting to LED lighting in various areas of the centre (changing rooms, fitness suite, group activity suites…) thereby reducing electrical energy consumption and CO2 emissions.
As a last resort, we have changed the entire lighting system at the sports pavilion, previously lit with 400W bulbs, to 95W LED bulbs, with this change we have gone from an annual consumption of 36388.8Kw to a consumption of 8642.34Kw in this space, which converts to a 11000Kg reduction in CO consumption annually.
We know that this is a hard road and that there is still a lot of work to do but we hope to make CEM Can Ricart an increasingly more sustainable and energy efficient place. We want to carry on in this way in the sure knowledge that many small actions can make big changes possible.
