University campuses and buildings are energy intensive estates that require large amounts of energy
for lighting, heating, cooling and powering teaching and research facilities. The increasing dependence
on grid electricity as the dominant energy source exposes people and the economy to electricity system
failures, particularly in a world of increasing severity and frequency weather extremes as the climate
changes. To build energy resilience, the University of West London has invested in natural low-emission
heating and ventilation systems as energy sources while also improving biodiversity on campus.
