Switch It Off! – Ongoing

The Student Switch Off is an energy-saving competition between Halls of Residence. Halls within each University compete against each other to reduce their energy usage from the baseline year. Prizes are given out during the year to reward individuals and halls for their hard work. The campaign will be running at over thirty Universities from September 2009 and Queen Mary is one of them!

So far this year the campaign has reduced the halls electricity use by 7.1%, which represents about £7,250 of utilities expenditure and 46 tonnes of CO2.  View document for further information.
