Social Responsibility and Sustainability

University of Edinburgh Action for the Climate: Walking the Talk

Since 2002 the University of Edinburgh has invested more than £20 million in an efficient network of low carbon and renewable power generation that now provides the majority of our energy needs.

This session, led by David Somervell, University of Edinburgh's Sustainability Adviser, will provide staff and students with an overview of how the University is embracing sustainability across the campus, and also give attendees an exclusive tour of the most recent Combined Heat and Power (CHP) installation in George Square, where 50 year old steam boilers were replaced with an innovative Trigeneration system used to power, heat and cool the many central area buildings.

The session will commence from 2pm at the ECCI, with the tour starting from 4pm.

Agenda: 2.00pm - 3.00pm: Low energy refurbishment of ECCI – winning awards and cutting carbon 3.15pm – 4.00pm: Combined Heat and Power: four on-campus power stations 4.00pm – 5.00pm: Tour of George Square Trigeneration Energy Centre

Following the tour, attendees are invited to continue the conversation on “What Next?” over a drink at the Teviot.

This event is part of a wider programme of activities taking place during Innovative Learning Week and is part of the University's Action for the Climate campaign.
