University of East London partners with Siemens to deliver net zero carbon by 2030

THE University of East London has established a strategic partnership with Siemens to collaborate on their net zero carbon aspiration to 2030, identifying opportunities to reduce overall energy use, drive the shift to renewable energy and transform its campuses in Docklands and Stratford.

To help UEL meet ambitious targets, Siemens is now delivering improvement measures across the University to cut its energy consumption, as well as engineering solutions for producing low-carbon energy on-site and specifying and installing renewable generation infrastructure across the Dockland and Stratford campuses. In parallel, the University is working with Siemens to embed sustainability across the curriculum to allow students to develop the skills they need to succeed in a green economy. The partnership is also exploring the creation of a Living Lab for teaching and research.

With a significant amount of zero-carbon, zero-cost energy per year. The majority of this energy will be consumed on-site, with the remainder stored or exported to the grid.
