The official 2017 results are due to be published next month by the Sustainable Energy Authority of Ireland (SEAI). Early indications are good, however the period between now and 2020 is crucial to our success. Can you help us?
We once again ask for a big effort to Switch-Off this bank holiday weekend. This extra effort can make a very considerable contribution to UCD’s environmental footprint and help us progress towards our 2020 targets.
With most University buildings closed for four consecutive days, this extended weekend offers one of the best opportunities of the year for us to save energy and reduce emissions through the Switch-Off Campaign.
The St. Patrick’s Day public holiday weekend is the first major switch-off opportunity of the year. It also offers an opportunity to provide an update on progress towards our 2020 target.
Following the closure of the University today and tomorrow due to the weather alert issued by Met Eireann please see below catering units that will remain open for those staying on campus.
The festive period is with us again – which means that University buildings will be closed for 11 consecutive days. This marks the longest period of time that the University is closed all year and therefore offers us considerable potential to reduce our carbon emissions and energy usage.
Commuting Survey open. Help us plan for the commuting developments of the future by taking part on the 2017 Commuting Survey.
During the summer we upgraded existing lighting to high efficiency LED in a number of locations across the University. LED lighting uses up to 50% less electricity, has a much longer life-span and provides better light quality.
UCD will be open as normal today, Tuesday 17 October 2017. After conducting a general inspection of the university facilities last night and another one this morning, we anticipate no access restrictions and the University should be operating as normal.
