San Anton palace to serve as guide on how antique buildings can be energy efficient

A study on how San Anton palace finds ways to be energy efficient will lead to the same study being used for other historical and antique buildings.

The study which was carried out under the patronage of President Marie-Louise Coleiro Preca, was led by architect Amber Wismayer.

This is the first project of its type carried out in our country in collaboration with the University of Bath and the University of Wales.

President Coleiro Preca said she hopes that when the results of the study are published shortly, the country’s authorities will be able to launch the first national strategy for the use of efficient energy at the Palace and other historical buildings.

This morning a seminar was held at the palace with the participation of several public and private entities with the aim of collecting more information for a study which has been ongoing for the last four years.
