Sustainabledmu week #4 | 21st – 28th of october 2012

Look what happened on @SustainableDMU Twitter account last week! Continuing talking about of energy use, we addressed the issue of heating office spaces, and in particular at DMU. In addition, we tried to explain the links between our actions and the carbon emissions that they cause; a topic that will be further analysed in the next week!

    @SustainableDMU We switched off many lights in faculties that had been left on when resetting after Open Day this morning.Very disappointing

    @BeverleyLad That is disappointing. Will send reminders out today and then again before next open day. Thanks for letting us know.

    #DMU’s measures to cut gas consumption #dmuenergy #dmuCC What do you think of them?

    @SustainableDMU Seems like a good start. I think the crucial thing is the temperature regulation, though – the control system.

    #DMU #Greentip Dress for the weather!Wearing clothes matched to weather reduce heating levels in winter and reduce cooling levels in summer

    #DMU #Greentip You can keep a warm sweater or scarf in the office to help you when your feeling cold

    #DMU #Greentip Lowering temperature by just 1°C can reduce annual consumption by up to 8%,so reduce temperature to minimum comfortable level

    #DMU #Greentip If it gets too hot in winter, don’t open a window, try turning down the temperature of the radiator instead where possible.

    #DMU #Greentip This work well at home. Put aluminum foil behind radiators fitted to outside walls to stop heating escaping through the walls
