Green Gown Awards recognise University of East Anglia’s innovative approach to energy management

University of East Anglia Logo

University of East Anglia and Open Energi were Highly Commended for their entry in the Technical Innovation for Sustainability category at the 2014 Green Gown Awards.

 

UEA was the first university to install Dynamic Demand across its campus, helping to keep the lights on and boosting its credentials as one of the most sustainable universities in the country.

Air handling units (AHUs) across its estate have been equipped with this unique form of Demand Response and the AHUs are now adjusting their energy consumption instantaneously to help National Grid balance electricity supply and demand in real-time.

What it means to win… “UEA has a top-rated School of Environmental Sciences and we are committed to replicating this success in the sustainability of our campus. Adopting more intelligent ways of managing our electricity demand supports this goal and we are thrilled to win a Green Gown award for our work with Open Energi.“

Professor Edward Acton, Vice-Chancellor

 

What the judges said: An interesting application of technology into the HE sector, where the complexity of power demands across a campus can be used to balance the power system. Clear applicability to other areas, and replicable elsewhere. The “invisibility” of the technological fix is also attractive.
