Shelburne Museum in Shelburne Vermont is home to some of the finest art in the world. Efforts to preserve and display this vast art collection once sent energy costs soaring. In response to this challenge the Museum began installing LED lighting in its galleries. And when the museum built their latest gallery, energy efficiency played a central role in the design and construction.
The Center remains comfortable year round with little energy use. The gallery uses advanced energy-efficient lighting, controls, and LED technology both inside and out. Many of the buildings features save energy. This includes high performance insulation, windows, ventilation, and heating and cooling systems.
The Pizzagalli Center for Art and Education exemplifies Shelburne Museum’s commitment to sustainability. The Center earned LEED certification in 2013 and avoids 248,000 lbs. carbon dioxide per year.
