Capturing energy efficient advancements via IT

Sheffield Hallam University is a teaching, research and knowledge transfer higher education institution with 30,000 students, 4,000 staff and a large estate stretching over two main campuses. It also has an ambitious growth strategy for the next decade. The University is constantly working towards best practice in environmental management and investigating ways inwhich its performance can be enhanced.

To help facilitate this process the University participated in the Carbon Trust’s Higher Education Carbon Management service 2007/2008. The development and implementation of a University-wide strategic Carbon Management Plan has consolidated and confirmed past and current carbon reduction activities and has set the direction for a low carbon future. A key area of activity approached as part of the wider plan was with regard to the University’s IT services.
