Members of the FRCS Energy and Sustainability Teams were commended at the awards event in Leicester.
The University Energy Team and Sustainability Team from the Estates Department within Facilities, Residential and Commercial Services (FRCS) have been highly commended at this year’s Green Gown awards for its Co-generation Carbon Climate Care project.
The Green Gown Awards event celebrate sustainability initiatives with 115 finalists representing 1.5 million students and 240,000 staff across the Higher Education sector.
Co-generation Carbon Climate Care project
The highly commended Carbon Climate project at the University has built an energy centre with a combined heat and power (CHP) plant and introduced a range of energy saving measures. This included new CHP units installed within a listed building showcasing a magnificent heritage restoration project of a former coal fired boiler-house. Without these energy efficient measures over the past 10 years the University’s carbon emissions would be 50% higher than our current position.
The benefits of the Carbon Climate Care Project have included:
Vice-Chancellor Professor Janet Beer said: “Receiving this award is sector-wide recognition of the efforts and dedication of our staff and students to reduce our carbon emissions. The long term planning undertaken to fulfil our strategy to reduce the University’s environmental impact – in line with our ongoing commitment to building a sustainable campus – is acknowledged by receiving this award.”
Education for Sustainable Development Project
From a collaborative partnership between the Sustainability Team, Centre for Lifelong Learning, Liverpool Guild of Students and faculties the Education for Sustainable Development Project was a finalist at the Green Gown awards.
The project utilised a cross-disciplinary “living laboratory” approach, where students studying Environmental Science, Biological Science, Engineering and could propose recommendations as to how their University can incorporate sustainable principles and design into its campus developments.
