We are aware that climate change is one the major challenges facing humanity. Therefore, we are committed to play our part by reducing our carbon footprint as well as continue to improve our environmental performance. Our Heat Decarbonisation Plan (HDP) is currently one of the frameworks on which we intend to deliver our net zero ambition.
The grant of £123,724.80 that we received from Phase 2 of the Low Carbon Skills Fund (LCSF) was used to commission and develop our HDP 2022. This HDP is aligned with our current Environmental Sustainability Action Plan (ESAP 2020-23), our Environmental Policy (2021) and aspiration to become one of the UK’s most environmentally friendly University.
The capital cost of implementing the low carbon, heat decarbonisation and associated initiatives within our HDP is approximately £9.3 million. The implementation of the recommendations within our HDP will be prioritised based on building carbon intensity, technical feasibility, ease of implementation, current and future building use and return on investment (ROI).
