Energy efficiency

Our aims are to audit energy use, set targets for improvement and motivate and enable students and staff to conserve energy.

Through our active Environment Committee we have worked with the Maintenance Department to:

  • install LED light bulbs
  • install motion detector light switches in newly refurbished accommodation
  • ensure that all window replacements are triple-glazed whenever possible 
  • monitor the energy consumption of all buildings
  • install draft proofing on aging windows

We also aim to engage students in considering their personal energy usage through the annual FitzOff competition. A prize is awarded to students who make significant energy reductions over a two week period.
