Energy and carbon

The University’s ambition is to be a climate-resilient campus, that has minimal negative and maximum positive environmental impact, achieving net zero carbon by 2035. We monitor energy and carbon across the entire University as part of the carbon management plan and in support of the Sustainability Strategy and Strategy2026 Net Zero Carbon targets.

The Energy team, Sustainability team, the University of Liverpool Energy Company (ULEC) and the Climate Action Group work together to develop a series of initiatives and interventions for improving energy efficiency around the University, in addition to the development of the long-term Net Zero Carbon strategy.

The Green Recovery with Clarke Energy at the University's Energy Centre

Rachael Hanmer-Dwight from the University's Energy team discusses our Combined Heat and Power (CHP) Energy Centre and Heat Network with Clarke Energy. The University of Liverpool generates up to 90% of its campuses electricity needs on site in the Energy Centre, through CHP. Clarke Energy help the University operate CHP in the most efficient way, keeping us on track with technological developments, such as how the CHP can be adapted to take different fuel blends.
