This guide written by EAUC Scotland in November 2022 aims to give a brief overview of energy reduction measures, both through behaviour change and energy management, and signpost to useful guidance for colleges and universities in the UK.

In the light of the 2022/23 energy crisis, this guide focuses on cost savings, but in most cases, reducing energy consumption will also reduce carbon emissions.

This guide written for individuals and teams at colleges and universities looking for guidance on where to start, or who want to expand their energy saving measures. It contains many links and resources that will help tailor your energy reduction measures to your institution.
