Energy savings made over the Christmas period

We have taken the initiative this year to reduce the energy consumption at our university. Having been closed over 10 days between the 23rd December and the 2nd January 2018, we had a fantastic opportunity to act and start a campaign in our university community.

The aim was to pass the message of 'switching off' to both colleagues and our students. After designing (took us ages) a poster to ask people to take part, the mission was on.

The result was astonishing! Energy consumption slashed by a whooping 40% in both campuses. To give you an idea, the energy saved could have powered about 1045 of the average British home for a WHOLE year!

Hats off to everyone who took part! You can be proud of you!
