Energy system overhaul
UOW is on track to meet its target to reduce energy consumption by 20 per cent before 2035. The Energy and Carbon Management Action Plan and an Environmental Management Plan addresses planned building refurbishments to be rolled out over a three-year period and completed in 2020. Before the work started, there were solar panels already installed on six buildings. Under this program, solar panels have been installed on 17 additional buildings. Plans are also being developed to install more energy-efficient air-conditioning systems in buildings more than 10 years old.
