Revolving Green Fund 2

£10.8 million was allocated to 27 HEIs and this included four larger projects at the universities of Bradford, Derby, Exeter and Plymouth:

  • The project at the University of Bradford is to transform the library from an energy-intensive 'E' rated building to an 'A' rating that will deliver a service for future generations with minimal environmental impact. The space will also be altered to provide greater flexibility of use.
  • The University of Derby project is to install Light-Emitting Diode (LED) lighting throughout the campus. Fluorescent lamps will be replaced with LED lights and controls will ensure that lights are only illuminated when needed.
  • The University of Exeter project focuses on Cornwall House, a 1960s building on the university campus. Retrofitting will radically improve the energy rating and will focus on 12 kinds of retrofit, including fabric improvements, metering and ventilation.
  • The Plymouth University project is to create the world's first integrated Information Communication Technology (ICT) and Building Energy Management System (BEMS), a system that can control all energy-consuming devices and systems in public or private buildings. The aim is for this to lead to step-changes in energy performance and behaviour at the university.
