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 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.
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.
Before you leave the campus this evening we would like to update you on the switch-off campaign and energy efficiency improvements to date, and please switch-off (body, mind and those pesky monitors ?) before you leave.

As we approach the May Bank Holiday weekend, please remember to switch-off computers, laptops, printers, monitors and screens or non-essential laboratory equipment such as drying ovens and fume-cupboards.
With the long weekend approaching we would like to remind you of the benefits of shutting down non-essential equipment this long weekend and to provide you with an update on the overall electricity usage in UCD.
