The cost of energy usage by museums, a significant portion of which is spent on environmental control, may not escape close scrutiny when the squeeze on resources tightens. This publication demonstrates the need for museums to strike a balance between environmental control and energy efficiency. Presenting both conventional and alternative solutions to refute the argument that saving energy means "switching off" an appliance, the text includes two case-studies which illustrate how museums of different size and scale of operation have succeeded in practice in improving environmental control and energy efficiency. Other papers give the text of important talks presented at a conference on "Saving Energy for a Better Environment", jointly hosted by the Museums & Galleries Commission and the Energy Efficiency Office of the Department of the Environment.
