Energy Coordinators

Energy Coordinators help promote energy reduction in their school or unit.

Energy Coordinator logo

The University is committed to reducing its energy consumption. Energy Coordinators help to drive energy efficiency locally within their units. 

Our Department supports each energy coordinator, providing them with materials and training so that they can better monitor energy usage in their areas and also so they can add to their skillset.

Each building  should have at least one Energy Coordinator. Where Schools or units are large, or where they cover more than one site, there should be Energy Coordinators who can each oversee a particular building.

Why this matters

Energy costs are rapidly growing at the University, exceeding £18 million last year, so it is strategically important to drive those costs down. From an environmental perspective, energy use is our single largest source of carbon emissions and therefore we cannot achieve our carbon reduction commitments without addressing energy consumptions.
