The Ministry of Communications, Works, Labour, and Energy (MCWLE) is thrilled to announce the successful completion of a comprehensive energy audit of 13 Government of Montserrat buildings, carried out from the 19th to the 23rd of June 2023.
This achievement is part of the Post-COVID Cost Reduction through Energy Efficiency project, valued at XCD 1,091,800, and is aimed at reducing the escalating energy costs of government properties in Montserrat. Through the implementation of energy-efficient retrofits and comprehensive training for building occupants, this initiative strives to enhance sustainability.
Leading the project is Wardell Armstrong LLP, a prominent UK-based Environmental, Engineering, and Mining Consultancy. They will deliver a detailed report, outlining recommendations for implementing energy-saving strategies and retrofits.
In conjunction with the energy audit, representatives from various ministries and departments participated in a rigorous training program on June 26th. The program offered participants a holistic understanding of the drivers of climate change and the potential impacts on Montserrat and the wider region.
