Managing energy consumption during the Games
Hosting a low carbon Games and achieving a 20 per cent reduction in energy consumption across the event was an ambitious target. The final result was a significant reduction in demand achieved by reducing overlay and unnecessary equipment in the design stage, specifying low energy equipment and implementing operational management procedures throughout the event and afterwards during the deconstruction of venues.
