The Sustainability Lab shaping brighter futures

Making energy work

Project Case Study

by Jo Stroud

Display Energy Certificates (DECs) are displayed in the main entrances of around 50 Bangor University buildings. They show how much energy each uses and how efficient it is. Together they are a valuable, easy-to-access information resource that tells us how well we’re doing at improving our energy efficiency, which is crucial to the success of our Sustainability Programme.

The D.E.C. system is audited every year as part of our Environmental Management System. These audits make sure the system is implemented correctly, running smoothly, and making continual improvements.

To promote and explain our energy efficiency programme, and to make our building energy usage information easier to find, use and compare, we’ve put our DECs on an online map. Zoom in to find the building you’re interested in, and click on it to see the DEC data:
