The use of energy (electricity and gas) is essential and unavoidable, and we are determined to use our energy more efficiently and effectively through the way we use it and by the installation of low carbon technologies. This will reduce our consumption and carbon emissions (and reduce costs).
During the 2020-2021 academic year, Liverpool Hope University consumed over 4.4 million kWh of electricity and over 9.3 million kWh of natural gas, at a cost of £1.04 million. The planned development of the campus and the ever-increasing price of fuel means this cost will rise year on year. The University is determined to reduce the kWh consumed, and therefore the cost, through maximising the efficiency with which the utility is used, through the use of low carbon technologies, and by behaviour change.
