University of Bristol
The University of Bristol’s commitment to sustainability took a significant step forward today (Monday 16 May) with a £2.5 million grant to embed carbon reduction technologies and practices in its first research and innovation hub at Temple Quarter Enterprise Campus.
In line with BDFI’s mission – transforming digital innovation for more inclusive, sustainable and prosperous futures – the testbed project will significantly decarbonise the energy use of the Institute’s datacentre and buildings, and includes:
- A Smart Energy System including a battery energy storage facility with a microgrid demand control system. This will maximise the use of low carbon energy by storing roof-top solar energy and storing/using grid sourced energy at times of low carbon intensity.
