Energy is important to everyone at the studio, from lighting sets to heating offices, everyone uses energy each day. As a studio, we try to use energy as sustainably as possible and we’ve invested in renewable energies and energy efficient technologies.
- Energy / CO2 saving methods
- Energy metering
- LED lighting
- Solar panels
We encourage everyone working on our sites to conserve energy wherever possible by:
- turning off lights when you leave;
- powering down electrical equipment that doesn’t need to be on;
- shutting windows whilst air conditioning is in operation.
K Block and Q Block at Pinewood Studios feature solar panels on the roofs. These can generate up to 32kW per hour when working at full capacity in the summer sunshine. Even in cloudy wet weather, they are still able to generate electricity using the sun’s rays.
The solar panels have so far generated enough electricity to boil a kettle 2.5 million times, or for over 5 million Google searches!
