Worcester Art Museum
The Worcester Art Museum, in Worcester, Massachusetts, would like to become more energy- efficient and reduce their carbon footprint. Our goal was to aid the museum's efforts to increase their sustainability by assessing energy use at their café, and to develop recommendations to increase the energy efficiency and sustainability of the café. Our team interviewed representatives from other museums, restaurants, and dining halls that had implemented green technology to determine best sustainability practices. We also performed an evaluation of the Worcester Art Museum’s café to obtain their baseline efficiency. Once this information was gathered, our team was able to provide the café with specific recommendations to increase their energy efficiency and sustainability.
