Includes five contributions from a conference held in London in 1991 on "Saving energy for a better environment." These are: 1) "Museum environments and energy efficiency," by William T. Bordas; 2) "A survey of energy use in museums and galleries," by Tadj Oreszczyn, Tim Mullany, and Caitriona Ni Riain; 3) "Air-conditioning, energy efficiency and environmental control," by Alfred Reading; 4) "The National Gallery Sainsbury Wing air-conditioning system," by Sean Ascough; and 5) "Lighting design and energy efficiency in museums and galleries," by Michael Carver. Also included are two commissioned case studies: "Environmental improvements and energy efficiency in Whitby Museum (UK)," by David Pybus and John William Morris; and "The National Museum of Photography, Film and Television in Bradford (UK): an exercise in environmental control, energy efficiency and financial savings," by Tim Whitehouse, intended to illustrate how two museums of different size and scale of operation have succeeded in improving environmental control and energy efficiency. A concluding chapter, "Managing priorities for environmental control and energy-efficient practice in museums," is provided by May Cassar.
