Reducing carbon footprint and saving costs.

CHP = Combined Heat and Power

This development supports the University's efforts to reduce its carbon footprint by installing a district energy scheme that generates hot water and electricity using state of the art technology.

Low carbon heat and power are generated on site in a refurbished energy centre on John Street. The energy is distributed to research and teaching buildings at the John Anderson Campus.











  • £20M investment in the estate
  • Significant CO2e savings 
  • Financial savings of £2.6M per year
  • Enhancing the learning & teaching experience
