Before you leave campus for the Christmas break, we would like to provide you with an update on some of the projects we have been running, and once more ask you to switch-off before you leave.
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 October Bank Holiday Weekend.
With approximately 400,000sqm of building space, lighting is a significant user of electricity in UCD, with up to 40% of all electricity consumption in some buildings. Check what we have been doing to reduce lighting consumption.
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 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.
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.
Before you leave campus this Christmas, please remember the University’s switch-off campaign and help improve UCD’s energy efficiency by switching off non-essential equipment and devices. Have a Merry Christmas ?
