A campus where a great deal of research takes place into sustainable energy, for example, the application of renewable sources, should lead by example. A truly green campus could soon even be energy neutral. The Sustainabattle project aims to tap into students’ ideas. In a month-long competition, student flats will take on the challenge to manage energy as efficiently as possible and arrange for more sustainable energy provisions. Consumption will be monitored continually and reported weekly, which will add an element of excitement. The winners will hold the title of ‘the most sustainable campus residents’ for a year and win energy saving products and a house party. By tapping into the inventiveness of student residents, new initiatives can be developed on the journey to becoming a green campus.
