Wireless TRVs could help universities reduce their energy use and achieve emissions targets

Wireless thermostatic radiator valves (TRVs) capable of reducing energy consumption by 20 to 30% could very well be the best solutions to help universities reduce their energy use and achieve their emissions targets.

This goal is especially important since, despite progress being made to tackle carbon emissions in the higher education sector, universities are still struggling to achieve collective 2020 reduction pledges, according to the latest Brite Green Higher Education Sector Carbon Progress Report.

The Brite Green report found that if higher education institutions continue along historical emission reductions, 71% of universities will fail to meet emissions targets, with only 37 projected to meet or exceed 2020 carbon reduction targets.

Despite reducing emissions by 10% against a 2005 baseline, the report notes that universities are only on course to achieve a 15% reduction by 2020, well short of the targeted 43% goal.

Out of the Russel Group Universities (which represent 50% of overall UK university emissions), the University of Birmingham achieved a 24% decrease in emissions whilst King’s College London saw a substantial 21% increase in carbon emissions since 2005. The largest overall increase in emissions came from the Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance, which has seen a 133% increase.

In order to meet the specific requirements set in the educational segment, Universities will certainly require very effective energy management systems 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.
