Australian university to become more energy efficient following massive investment

An Australian university that aims to be carbon neutral by the end of 2030 has recently received an investment worth $9.1 million (£4.5m) to be more energy efficient, a news report has been able to find.

The University of Melbourne will use the funding provided by the Clean Energy Finance Corporation (CEFC) to support a variety of projects that aim to help it reduce its energy bills and improve efficiency.

They include implementation of innovative efficient and renewable energy technologies such as solar panels, voltage optimisation and micro-turbines.

Paul McCartney, Executive Director at the CEFC said: “Australia’s 39 universities make a major contribution to the national economy and to the Australian community. Yet they face the ongoing challenges of public budget restraint, intensifying global competition and the need to use cutting edge technologies to meet increasing student expectations.

“Clean energy installations like those being undertaken by the University of Melbourne can help universities meet these challenges through an investment that results in reduced environmental impact, higher productivity and stronger financial performance.”

Beside the aforementioned energy measures, implementing a very effective energy management system will also likely contribute to achieving significant savings and that’s exactly where the HeatSave programmable wireless thermostatic valves can really come in handy.

The HeatSave wireless thermostatic valves represent a very good solution for the healthcare industry, where energy costs are 2nd only to labour costs. That’s because the TRVs can help customers slash their energy bills by up to an impressive 30 percent by allowing them to thoroughly control the heating patterns for every single one of their radiators.

Moreover, it’s quite likely that the hospital could benefit from the financial advantages provided by the Government’s Green Deal scheme, given the fact that the HeatSave valves represent an approved measure to control radiators under the aforementioned programme.
