The University is committed to reducing its carbon footprint and has identified that parts of its Estate are large consumers of electricity and gas. On analysis, it is only a small amount of buildings, some 15, that produce nearly 80% of our Scope 1 (Gas) and 2 (Electricity) carbon emissions.
We have targeted these sites with Operation and Optimisation meetings to engage with building management, analyse consumption data, check building usage, adjust BMS controls and identify/implement energy saving opportunities.
The Carbon Counter has been produced to show all building users of the current and historic consumption at their particular site, what has been done and what is to be done to continually lower emissions.

The results from the top 15 sites are available below and will be updated quarterly. These will also be sent to Building Wardens and can be utilised by Green Impact Teams and Environmental Champions.
If you require any further information, please contact the Energy Team on 01227 782448.
If your building has not been listed in the 15 and you would like information, then please contact the Energy Team as the data specific to your building can be obtained.
