Overview

The university energy efficiency program is an integral part of its strategic development. It is crucially important since will allow both cut costs and develop a corporate culture of energy saving. Moreover, the university understands the harmful effects of climate changes and global warming and the energy and resource-efficient policy is a vital response to these new global challenges - explaining these important concepts to the new generations and developing new technologies.


Goals and tasks

The program goal is to create a mechanism of efficient use of energy resources, developed through organizational, legal, economic, scientific, and engineering means.


Tasks

  1. Cutdown in spending
  2. Reduction of energy losses in engineering networks
  3. Improving the quality of operation of energy-consuming installations
  4. Increase the level of building thermal protection
  5. Development of a monitoring system of consumed energy and energy losses in engineering networks

Program stages

Stage I - 2010-2013

  • Energy-consuming survey
  • Installation and upgrading of energy monitoring tools
  • Identification of areas of further development based on the energy-consuming survey and data from the installed and upgraded energy monitoring tools

The first stage includes low-cost activities and high-performance projects with a short payback period of 1-3 years; training of specialists; adjustment of the energy saving program.

 

Stage 2 – 2014-2018

  • Widespread implementation of the most efficient energy saving solutions
  • Completion of the most capital-intensive actions, ensuring considerable increase in the efficiency and reliability of power supply systems

The second stage includes high-cost activities with a payback period of over 4 years; implementation of projects involving advanced energy-saving technologies and energy-efficient equipment; diversification of energy infrastructure; and developing prerequisites for the transition to alternative energy sources in the overall energy balance of the University.


Major activities

  1. Creation and development of mechanisms for encouraging energy-saving behavior
  2. Development of motivation for energy-saving behavior among academic staff and students

 

Expected results

  • About 30% drop of specific energy consumption
  • 20% drop of specific heat consumption
  • Improvement of working conditions

reduction of environmental pollution
