How does it work?

Every hall is set monthly targets for energy consumption, based on how much energy that hall used that month in previous years, adjusted to take account of any improvements that have been mad

e (such as installing low energy lights or boiler improvements).The hall that makes the most savings relative to their target each month wins £150 towards their hall committee funds, to be spent on sustainability-related events and projects. There are more prizes for each semester’s winners too.

How do I help my hall win?

Your hall environment rep will be able to point out ways you can save energy and how you can make the most different in your particular hall. Visit this webpage to find useful tips on how to save energy in your hall of residence and don't forget to:

  • Check your progress by viewing your Hall’s energy consumption on Systemslink
    (log in as and password of interhall)
  • Check out the results on our Facebook Page
  • If you have any ideas on how your hall can reduce their energy usage and waste then chat to your Environment Reps! The more ideas the better so far this academic year we've seen:
  1. Sustainable Selfie Competition
