What is it?

A Treasury part-funded project with the aim of saving at least 10% of our energy usage in the next 3 years
See www.bigenergychallenge.org for more details
How will it do this?
What has happened so far?
Why do this?
To reduce our carbon footprint, our environmental impact, and our energy bills.
"As a leading institution with an international reputation for teaching and research in the environmental and energy fields, we have to ensure we also seek to practice what we teach. We as Universities should be exemplars of best environmental practice and take our responsibilities to reduce our contribution to climate change seriously. I think that this project, with the support of the staff and students, gives us a real chance to make a difference"
Prof. Jane Millar , Pro Vice Chancellor (Strategic Developments)
