SSE Energy Solutions has partnered with The Association of University Directors of Estates (AUDE) to inform Universities on the best practices to go green and decarbonise.
Energy professionals from SSE have provided certified Continuing Professional Development training across UK campuses, on the topic of decarbonisation. The sessions, led by subject matter experts, set out to provide a better understanding of how to achieve net zero goals within enforced time frames, and what considerations are necessary to achieve them.
Materials produced for the training were developed by SSE Energy Solutions, in collaboration with AUDE, which demonstrated a “whole system approach.” They included aspects from policy, legislation, procurement, contracting, investment, solution development, and examples from academia and industry.
The face-to-face courses have taken place across the UK and Ireland including sessions delivered in Bath, Birmingham, Sheffield, Cardiff, Dublin, and Edinburgh. Participants received CPD points from AUDE, as the authorising body which certifies the training.
SSE were recently selected to work as the strategic energy partner to the University of Surrey and is currently working in collaboration with the university to remove approximately 5000 tonnes of carbon per year from their total annual emissions in addition to increasing their on-site renewable energy generation at the same time.
