Paul Hasley will review the use of energy at Cambridge University and discuss several recent initiatives to reduce its carbon footprint. This will be followed by an open discussion, about what the University should do. The seminar gives an opportunity to explore opportunities for the University to take a leading role in carbon emissions reduction.

Paul Hasley has been the University’s Energy Manager since 2004. Leading a team within the Estate Management and Building Service he initiated the development of a carbon management strategy for the University and gained Carbon Trust support for this in the form of £600k grant funding via the Salix programme. In the last year he has been busy with the introduction of a University policy to incentivise departments in the efficient use of electricity and the UK/EU legislation under the Energy Performance of Buildings Directive. In the next year he will also be responsible for ensuring that the University complies with the Carbon Reduction Commitment. With a remit that includes all utilities he has also helped to continue the University’s success in driving down water usage across the estate over the last two decades. EMBS work on water conservation at the University has been ‘highly commended’ by the HEEPI Green Gowns Awards twice in the last 4 years.

Paul is well versed in both the theory and practice of energy management. Having gained an MSc in Energy Conservation and Management he became a member of the Energy Institute in 1992 and then enjoyed a successful career which encompassed both public and private sector organisations. He recently became a Low Carbon Energy Assessor meaning that he is now qualified to produce Display Energy Certificates for University buildings.
