Abstract: The Green Energy Committee within GANADO Advocates has been working on a number of initiatives to enhance the energy efficiency of its office building in Valletta. Following major renovation to the law firm’s offices, it was deemed appropriate to carry out an energy audit to identify steps that can be taken to save on energy and enable the law firm to become ‘greener’. The audit was made possible thanks to the collaboration between the law firm and the Institute for Sustainable Energy of the University of Malta. A specific training activity under the auspices of the project entitled: “Renewable Energy Scenarios in Islands (R.E.S.I.), co-financed by the Operative Programme Italy-Malta 2007-2013, and led by the Province of Ragusa, Italy, has enabled the exchange of scientists, engineers and architects between Italy and the Institute in Malta. The energy audit was carried out in November 2012 and focused on the building envelope, energy consumption and lighting, as well as the potential of installing renewable energy systems. The study provided solutions to a number of issues that were identified during the survey, some of which have already been implemented.
