Data Energy Certificates 

The ten (annual) Data Energy Certificates (DECS), for which GU is legally obligated to display in commercial buildings over 1000m2 have now been renewed and completed in January 2018. They are all on public display. Alongside this, Principles House in Regent Street also received a new( ten year) expiry DEC certificate, issued due to occupation and under the commercial DEC category regulations in July 2015 legislation requirements for buildings 250 – 500 m2. Principles House also benefitted from an energy advisory report.

Take a look at our overall ratings!  Great news - 80% of our buildings received energy ratings of  C or above.

Carbon footprints

Carbon Footprint

As well as encouraging staff, students and visitors to save energy we also look closer to home, literally, on our own doorstep, at our student accommodation and how we can increase  environmental awareness, adopting new procedures and reduce our overall carbon emissions. We include our student accommodation energy usage and carbon footprint statistics, along with all our other buildings annually to the Higher Education Statistics Agency (HESA). This is the official agency for the collection, analysis and dissemination of quantitative information about higher education in the United Kingdom.
