Zoology Energy Saving Target (ZEST)

last modified Aug 08, 2013 02:15 PM
This year, the University has devolved electricity costs to Departments and has set a savings target. Saving on energy costs is both environmentally sound and financially in our interest.


The Head of Department has urged all members of the department to take action:

  • Shut down computers, screens and printers overnight.  This is the priority action requested of all staff in the short-term.
  • Switch off all other non-essential electrical appliances
  • PI's are asked to take a lead in ensuring that their group members follow good practice

The Department will be undertaking the following:

  • Adjustment of temperature and air handling controls in the Museum, Lecture Theatre and Elementary Laboratory
  • Replacing light bulbs with energy-efficient versions wherever possible
  • Ensuring that equipment purchases are energy-efficient.
