Energy Efficiency in new Capital Projects at Lerwick

Energy efficiency was a key factor in the design of Lerwick’s new fishmarket in terms of insulation, heating and cooling systems.

Measures include reduced energy usage for both cooling the market itself and for heating the office areas. The cooling systems use Care45 and Hycool refrigerants rather than other harmful alternatives.

Significant refurbishment of the Authority’s headquarters saw a number of environmental improvements introduced, including: improved insulation, secondary glazing, intelligent electric heaters and motion sensor LED lighting throughout.
