Energy Efficiency

CityU used 51.5 million kWhr of electricity in 2010. This equates to 310 kWhr/m2. CDO monitors energy consumption and is upgrading the campus to achieve energy savings.

Everyone at CityU should help to save energy by:
  • Not cooling rooms below 25.5oC in hot weather and wearing clothes which are comfortable at this temperature;
  • Not leaving doors and windows open in a way which causes hot humid air to come into buildings or conditioned air to be lost;
  • Turning off lights when not needed;
  • Aligning office partitioning and furnishing to take advantage of natural lighting;
  • Using energy saving software in computers;
  • Switching off computers, printers, photocopiers, lighting and air-conditioning when they are not in use;
  • When buying equipment ensure it is energy efficient.
