Steps we are tak­ing to meet our targets

How Not­ting­ham Col­lege is work­ing on it’s sustainability

  • From April 2022 the college’s new ener­gy sup­ply con­tracts com­mence which see elec­tric­i­ty pur­chased from a 100% renew­able ener­gy source.
  • The switch to this ener­gy provider will fur­ther reduce our car­bon emis­sions by an esti­mat­ed 68%. 
  • An edu­ca­tion pro­gramme is to be launched which encour­ages staff and stu­dents to save ener­gy and water by adopt­ing envi­ron­men­tal­ly friend­ly practices.
  • We will be mon­i­tor­ing our cam­pus­es close­ly, car­ry­ing out full ener­gy audits which assess the per­for­mance and oper­a­tion of the heat­ing, ven­ti­la­tion, cool­ing and light­ing sys­tems, along with an analy­sis of ener­gy con­sump­tion against time. 
  • This will allow site spe­cif­ic car­bon reduc­tion tar­get set­ting, enable us to deter­mine any quick win” one-off opti­mi­sa­tion ini­tia­tives (such as tem­per­a­ture and motion sen­sors, con­trols, sup­ply load bal­anc­ing, water taps) and any renew­able cap­i­tal invest­ment pro­grammes such as LED light­ing, boil­er replace­ments and build­ing insulation.
  • The col­lege will eval­u­ate the via­bil­i­ty of self-gen­er­a­tion of elec­tric­i­ty through renew­ables. Pre­dom­i­nant­ly this would be through the instal­la­tion of pho­to­volta­ic solar panels.
  • Replace the exist­ing col­lege fleet of vehi­cles with elec­tric pow­ered vehicles.
