Wyboston Lakes Resort announces new energy partnership

Wyboston Lakes Resort, a 380-acre conference and leisure venue in Bedfordshire, has announced a partnership with the Energy Check, a company that specialises in minimising energy usage costs and CO2 across a number of businesses, including stadia and leisure venues.

The partnership aims to help increase energy efficiency and reduce the carbon footprint of the venue. The Energy Check will conduct an extensive review of energy usage across the conference, training and leisure complex with a view to help reduce energy consumption and emissions in addition to introducing alternative energy sources and renewable technologies.

The review will support Wyboston Lakes' ‘2020 Green Objectives’ initiative, which includes reducing its carbon footprint by 50% by 2025 and continuing its ‘zero waste to landfill’ promise.

Director of marketing at Wyboston Lakes Resort, Louisa Watson, said: “We have been working extremely hard on our sustainability strategy and this new partnership with The Energy Check will help to further strengthen our mission. It will support us in implementing meaningful change to enhance our energy efficiency and cut our carbon footprint.”

The new partnership follows Wyboston Lakes Resort’s Gold Status achievement in last year’s Green Tourism Awards, a national sustainable tourism certification scheme for the UK & Ireland.

The Energy Check's sports and leisure venue clients include Millwall FC, Blackburn Rovers FC and QPR FC, alongside Newbury racecourse, Oxford Playhouse and Poole Arts Trust.

CEO of The Energy Check, David Winton, said: “We are delighted to have entered a long-term partnership with Wyboston Lakes Resort. Wyboston Lakes Resort is the type of customer that we love to work with, with sustainability and energy efficiency high on their agenda. Over the coming years we can demonstrate our extensive skills in energy project management and consultancy, working towards our shared goals of reducing energy costs, consumption and emissions with a number energy technology projects.”
