Blow the whistle on energy guzzlers on the campus of Aalto University!

Building a sustainable future is one of our shared values. Significant energy saving measures have been taken on the campus for several years, but now we also need your help. We challenge the entire campus community to join an energy saving effort and to share the best energy saving ideas.

Actions supporting sustainable development have been taken on Aalto University’s campus for a number of years. Saving energy is one of the most significant of these, and now the global energy crisis has further increased the importance of saving measures. 

The properties on the Otaniemi campus vary a great deal in terms of age, size and use. Even minor changes on sites that consume plenty of energy bring considerable savings. The actions of property users also have a large impact, especially in buildings with many users.

We, as the whole Aalto community, have joined the nationwide Down a Degree campaign – and we want all Aalto students and employees and campus users to join in. Read the text below on everything that has already been done on campus and what we have planned, and share your best saving tips and report on the energy guzzlers on our campus!

Read more about Aalto University’s and ACRE’s energy saving objectives for next year.

Saving energy is a common mission for every one of us! Share your best ideas and put your questions to the campus experts below (registered users only).
