Case Study: University of Winchester

We carried out an Energy Audit that identified cash savings opportunities of £44,300 and a possible 15% reduction in energy consumption.

The Brief

The University of Winchester has under 6,000 students studying a broad range of subjects at both undergraduate and postgraduate levels. The University was established in 1840 and successfully combines its heritage with innovation.

Our Approach

Utilitywise carried out an Energy Audit which identified a range of savings for the University which, if put into practice, would lead to a 15% reduction in energy consumption and a 14% reduction in cost – approximately £44,300. Utilitywise assessors produced Display Energy Certificates for West Downs Campus and King Alfred Campus.

Our Solution

Using the recommendations in our report, the University has implemented a number of measures to reduce their energy consumption and their carbon footprint. Powerful measures introduced include boiler and insulation upgrades and the installation of LED and induction lighting. By acting upon the initial recommendations from Utilitywise, the University has improved its average DEC rating by ten points.
