Reading University to invest £500k in energy efficiency

Reading University plans to enhance its sustainability programme and invest further into energy efficiency after securing £500,000 in funding, a news report into the matter has recently been able to reveal.

The University’s Carbon Management Plan aims to be a leader in sustainability through lowering its carbon emissions by 35% by mid-2016. To date, the University has cut its emissions by 23%, saving £7.4 million in the process. According to the University, it’s on track to meet its reduction target by 2016.

The HEFCE’s (Higher Education Funding Council for England) Revolving Green Fund provides recoverable grants to help higher education institutions in England reduce emissions and save money.

In order to meet the specific requirements set in the educational segment, the University will certainly require a very effective energy management system to be put in place, 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.
