Energy and emissions

The building management in cooperation with the Green Office has launched an energy-saving campaign to motivate employees and students of the University of Göttingen to use energy consciously in (office) spaces. In order to make behaviour-based energy consumption more efficient in (professional) everyday life at the university, information materials are provided free of charge to support the implementation of this measure. The door label explains the meaning of the numbers on the radiator thermostat and the energy-saving thermometer displays the current room temperature.

The Real Estate and Facilities Management department provides comprehensive information on its website (external or internal) about potential savings in energy consumption. There you will also find reports on energy consumption at the university for the past years. Energy-saving measuring devices can also be borrowed.
