DMU’s measures to cut electricity consumption | A little summary

  1. SustainableDMU
    What means saving #energy at #DMU?It is possible to save energy with the introduction of more efficient technologies http://dmu.ac.uk/about-dmu/dmu-estate/energy/energy-saving/energy-saving.aspx
  2. SustainableDMU
    #DMU replaced lights in part of Kimberlin, Fletcher, Estates Services Building and Portland with LEDs that use a fraction of electricity
  3. SustainableDMU
    Here you can find a short explanation about how LEDs are more efficient than other lightings. http://www.energystar.gov/index.cfm?c=lighting.pr_what_are
  4. SustainableDMU
    In the new LeisureCentre compact fluorescent bulbs have been used to provide efficient lighting, linked to occupancy. http://energy.gov/energysaver/articles/fluorescent-lighting
  5. SustainableDMU
    But #electricity is not only lights! @LibraryDMU saved electricity over summer 2011 by directing students to PCs on the ground and 1st floor
  6. SustainableDMU
    Moreover,#DMU introduced voltage optimisation in4buildings at DMU, Hawthorn Building, Kimberlin Library, Campus Centre and Queen’s Building.
  7. SustainableDMU
    Voltage optimisation works by reducing voltage of electricity from 240 to 220volts.It’s estimated to save about 10% of electricity.
  8. SustainableDMU
    Also the LeisureCentre uses passive ventilation stacks and wind catchers to cut the use of intensive air conditioning. http://www.practicaldiy.com/self-build/ventilation/passive-stack-ventilation.php
