The UK was one of the first countries to recognise and respond to societal challenge posed by climate change. The Climate Change Act (2008) committed the UK to reducing greenhouse gas emissions by at least 80% by 2050 when compared to 1990 levels.
This report presents the results of a survey of University estates staff, carried out by the Association for Decentralised Energy, in co-operation with the Association of University Directors of Estates (AUDE) and the Scottish Association of University Directors of Estates (SAUDE), and a workshop to further explore and validate the findings.
The survey responses will inform ADE’s work on the role of the public sector in the transition to net zero and help shape a workshop with AUDE and SAUDE members on how to further develop and decarbonise university heat networks and support the transition to net zero.
