Maastricht University’s General and Technical Services will take measures developed by the Green Office to increase energy efficiency at UCM.
Conventional lights will be replaced with energy efficient LEDs in the corridors and parts of the common room, and movement detectors and ambient light detectors will be installed in corridors, the common room, classrooms and offices. Calculations show that the investment will pay back after approximately 4.5 years, yielding savings of around 20 per cent of UCM´s annual electricity consumption. The project will be implemented in late 2012.
To investigate further measures, the Green Office will participate in a project coordinated by Hogeschool Zuyd on the renovation of historical buildings. Participants in the Premium programme, an honours programme for excellent master’s students, will develop a high-level business case.
