Live Energy Feed

Measuring and monitoring our electricity use is the first step to managing and reducing our carbon emissions and our environmental impact. The table below shows you clearly how fast the electricity meter is currently spinning in featured buildings across UNSW. This is a great way to educate ourselves on our energy use and will help us all to better manage our consumption.

This leaderboard takes the most recent weekly electricity meter reading and compares it to the average weekly reading over the previous year. Reduction in electricity consumption is indicated by a minus (-) sign before the percentage and an increase in consumption is indicated by a plus (+). The buildings that have reduced their electricity the most will show at the top of the leaderboard.

UNSW's Energy Management Unit has partnered with Greensense, to extract the sustainability performance of a building and deliver it in real-time so that staff and students can see how their personal day-to-day actions like leaving the lights on or opening windows in climate-controlled rooms directly impacts on the energy demand of their building. Access the Greensense dashboard from here.
