Lighting up London Met

Lighting Up London Met consists of 3 main areas – installing 3,170 LED lights, 221 PV panels and 914 windows. The project brightened up the University by improving light quality and utilised sunlight to make our own energy.

The projects were undertaken as part of the Transforming Energy Efficiency at Central House (TEECH) project to improve the energy efficiency of a 1960’s building and the Mayor’s RE:FIT scheme which guaranteed a 7% energy saving across three of the University’s buildings.

Lighting Up London Met builds on the success of the previous carbon management plan which resulted in savings of 43% in 2014 and we expect to meet and exceed our 2020 carbon reduction target of 50% by the end of the academic year of 2015/16.
