45% Energy Savings Targeted With Carbon Numbers


Regent’s University London have entered a 5 year energy performance contract with Carbon Numbers that will provide the University with savings of 1,546 tonnes of Co2 emissions.

Regent’s University London is London’s only independent, not for profit University. Based in royal Regent’s Park and Marylebone, Regent’s offers a truly multicultural and dynamic learning environment to prepare its students for their future.

With the growing agenda for sustainability and energy reduction, Regent’s University London has appointed Carbon Numbers to manage their energy consumption and deliver a carbon management plan, thereby saving costs and improving carbon footprint. Focusing on the need for energy management is crucial; it saves money, improves the environmental performance of buildings and helps everyone in the fight against climate change.

Reducing energy consumption means that the money saved can be used elsewhere in the University and will also help to provide efficient and reliable service to students, faculty and staff. Being energy and water efficient is beneficial both financially and environmentally for the University.

Speaking to Alan Donnachie, Head of Estates and Facilities of the University about the agreement with Carbon Numbers, Donnachie said “Regent’s is committed to taking positive action to minimise its emissions and create a greener future. One of the key goals for the University is to use innovation and sustainability to achieve the maximum potential. By entering a long-term partnership we will see a substantial saving within our energy usage and our energy costs”

Carbon Numbers will be responsible for ensuring the systems in place provide the best resources that develop a low carbon strategy for the buildings with ongoing support. 

The agreement includes:

  •   Bill validation 
  •   Sub metering 
  •   BEMS platform
  •   Remote bureau support and assistance 
  •   Ongoing Delivery of ISO 50001 compliance
  •   Support with tender and project management of LED and heating system upgrades 

Over the duration of the contract it is estimated the University will see an overall saving of 1,546 tonnes of Co2 emissions, with the financial saving being equal to a years energy spend.
