The University of Greenwich studies cutting down on energy costs
Greenwich University, an institution with ambitions of becoming Net Zero by 2030. They have a long history of driving sustainable practices and Emissis were able to help with that journey with our Coolnomix technology.
As a large University campus, there is high usage of air conditioning. Installing 125 units across the university site has generated huge savings on the cost of energy, but more importantly improved their carbon footprint through saving over 1,200 kilowatts per unit annually.
Greenwich University, after a successful pilot project, are installing 124 Coolnomix energy saving units across their air conditioning (AC) estate across 3 campus at Medway, Avery Hill & Bathway and at Greenwich. Coolnomix is a globally patented, innovative, retrofit, energy reduction device that reduces energy consumption and C02 emissions when installed on air conditioning and refrigeration equipment without affecting the performance or output of the AC units.
The units will reduce energy consumption by a forecast 23% saving the University over 315,000 kWh in electricity overspend. In addition, Coolnomix will save over 85 tonnes of C02 by reducing the emissions from each campus site.
On average, each Coolnomix unit will reduce energy consumption by around 3kWh every day!
The technology is designed to payback within a period of 12 – 18 months and with an expected lifespan of 10 + years it will continue to deliver financial and carbon savings for the University for many years to come.
