To achieve our carbon reduction targets and protect our environment from the use of fossil fuels, the University aims to champion renewable energy as much as possible.

To this end, we already have:

  • Over 2,480 solar photovoltaic panels across the campus, with plans to increase this to over 5,919m2 by the end of 2019 across exciting new building projects.
  • Solar Thermal panels provide heating to water tanks attached to the District Heating System.

Visualising Warwick's renewable energy

Our renewable energy sources generate enough power to run 125 homes for a year (based on 4,000kWh/household annually). The area they cover is equivalent to…

  • 23 tennis courts.
  • 400 parking spaces.
  • 17 IMAX screens.
  • 95,468 A4 sheets of paper
  • 1,100,000 Post-it® Notes.

Future projects will also look to install panels where possible on current and future builds. You can view our solar panel map  , which shows how renewables are integral to our all-new National Automotive Innovation Centre and Sports and Wellness Hub.
