The Switch-Off campaign plays a very important part in our over-all energy efficiency programme and in helping us to deliver on our target of a 33% improvement in energy. Don't forget to Switch-Off this August Bank Holiday Weekend.
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.
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.
