Energy management is as much a growing priority for the University as it is for businesses and householders. This year the University expects to spend over £10 million on utility bills which is more the £2 million higher than last year. The main reason behind the rise in energy costs is higher fuel prices but there are also some concerning trends in energy use. See energy facts and figures to find out more.
The University is also committed to reducing its carbon dioxide emissions, minimising our environmental impact and contribution towards global climate change. The University has a target of a 10% reduction in CO2 emissions by 2012/13. For details of how we plan to achieve this view our Carbon Management Plan
