In 2016, we were the first university in Wales to engage energy-saving scheme, The Student Energy Project (TSEP) at our Singleton Park Campus halls of residence to help us lower our carbon footprint and provide energy cost-savings. In the first year of operation, TSEP recorded a 4% lowering of our electrical energy consumption, equating to 60,000 kWh of savings.
What is TSEP?
When you register your room with TSEP you can easily monitor your energy and water usage. The scheme offers simple energy saving tips such as using natural light instead of having the lights on and turning off appliances when not in use. If you use less energy than expected, you earn points which you can cash in, in exchange for some fantastic rewards.
How can I get involved with TSEP?
Getting involved with TSEP is simple. You just have to register your room. Once you've registered you can get involved through competitions, volunteering, online courses and there are even job opportunities through TSEP.
Become a TSEP Rep
If you're really keen, you could become a TSEP rep and help us encourage other students to sign up to the scheme. In return for your commitment, you get a free hoodie, cash bonuses and work experience in an energy sector company.
