Energy Management in Higher Education: Value for Money Study.
Scottish Higher Education Funding Council, Edinburgh.; Higher Education Funding Council for England, Bristol.; Higher Education Funding Council for Wales, Cardiff.
This Value for Money project provides an update of the 1996 "Energy Management Study in the Higher Education Sector: National Report." It reviews the management arrangement for utilities in the higher education (HE) sector, and it identifies key actions and future issues that must be addressed by HE institutions in developing a strategic policy framework for sustainability that includes energy management. Three sections examine: (1) "Utilities Management in the HE Sector" (e.g., sector profiles, specific issues for energy management, monitoring and targeting systems, and technology design); (2) "Sustainability Framework for the HE Sector" (e.g., estates strategy, energy policy, energy management, sources of external funding, and sector initiatives); and (3) "Future Issues" (legislation, drivers for sustainability, energy targets, government bodies, energy service companies, climate change levy, and accountability and assurance). The appendixes include: study background; membership of working groups; participating higher education institutions; communication matrix questionnaire and results; checklists and other resources; glossary, bibliography, and additional sources; summary of ShareFair HE energy management network events; drivers for sustainable estates management in the FHE sector; external drivers for integrating sustainability into estates management in the HE sector; and case studies.
