Energy Consumption

As part of its efforts to significantly reduce RGU’s emissions from energy, the university monitors its consumption of electricity and gas across all of the buildings it manages.

By tracking consumption and comparing usage across time we are able to quickly identify buildings/areas where there is excessive consumption as well as encourage staff and students to think about what actions they can take to reduce wastage and promote energy efficiency in their day to day work. 

Each building's electricity & gas consumption is compared to the previous year e.g. March 2022 against March 2021.

March  2021 - 2022
