Case study: Grimsby Town Market
Grimsby Top Town Market, located in the heart of Grimsby Town Centre, , is home to many local businesses ranging from flower stalls, butchers, fruit & veg stalls and so much more. Also known as Top Town Market, it’s now top for energy efficiency.
The much loved community hub has just finished an energy saving project whereby new LED lights have been installed on the trading stalls, main hall and food area. The change to LED is predicted to have positive benefits in lowering the traders’ energy bills while reducing the building’s carbon emissions.
Linda Bulbeck, Markets Manager at ENGIE, said:
“The project has been well received by traders and customers alike and assists in making the market a happy and vibrant place for shopping and leisure. It was really surprising when the new lights were installed to see just how much brighter the building is now. The new LED lighting not only has the benefits of reducing costs and our carbon footprint but it also has the added benefit of making a property which has no natural light a more pleasant place to work and visit.”
Grimsby Top Town Market is managed by ENGIE on behalf of North East Lincolnshire Council as part of the North East Lincolnshire Regeneration Partnership.
The new energy efficient LED lights will also improve light quality and make the building more energy efficient by up to 65%.
The Smart Energy Greater Lincolnshire programme brings together funding from the European Regional Development Fund, council resources, and applications to the Salix Energy Efficiency Loan Scheme (SEELS), which provides interest-free loans for public sector energy saving projects. Savings from the energy bills will repay the Salix loan.
Grimsby Town Market is one of the many public buildings in the Greater Lincolnshire area benefiting from the Smart Energy Greater Lincolnshire programme. Why not check out our other case studies to see what other buildings we have worked on.
