Affordable and Clean Energy

Our everyday life depends on reliable and affordable energy. Yet energy consumption is the dominant contributor to climate change, accounting for around 60 percent of total global greenhouse gas emissions.

In 2022, the University used 85,000GJ of energy over 253,682m² of floor space. We undergo regular energy reviews to identify areas of energy waste, and seek to make our buildings more energy efficient.
