What DMU is doing to report its gas consumption

De Montfort University is committed to significantly reducing its energy and water consumption over the coming years, in recognition of the financial, environmental and social benefits presented by efficient resource use. In recognition of the links between fossil fuel use and climate change, the UK government has introduced measures such as the Climate Change Levy and the CRC Energy Efficiency Scheme to encourage organisations to reduce their energy consumption.

Since the academic year 2010/2011 DMU produced quarterly gas reports for every individual building at DMU. The aim they have been created was to show students, staff, and visitors the amount of energy used in each building of the university, if it is decreasing or increasing over time, and how the usage compares to other buildings on the campus.

Moreover, DMU produces and Energy League Report, in which the different building are ranked based on their percentage change in energy use compared to the previous year. Negative change [green] indicates a saving. The figures have been corrected to reflect changes in the weather.

£ column shows the change in energy cost for each building compared to 2010/11. The cost is based on the current cost per kWh.
kgCO2 indicates the increase or decrease in CO2 emissions.
kWh/m2 indicates the energy usage for square metre in each building.
