University of Southampton given share of £3m to cut emissions

First published in News

SOUTHAMPTON researchers are aiming to improve the energy efficiency of buildings across the country thanks to a funding boost.

The University of Southampton is one of six universities to share a £3 million budget to help cut costs and reduce carbon emissions in non-domestic buildings.

Backing the project is the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council, on behalf of the Research Councils UK Energy Programme, and £1m from the Technology Strategy Board.

Non-domestic buildings include offices, supermarkets, hospitals and factories and account for almost 18 per cent of UK carbon emissions.

The Southampton project, which was awarded £493,000 of funding, will examine how external digital cameras can be used to monitor how windows, blinds and lighting are used.
