The strategic partnership between Siemens and the University of East London (UEL) will ensure the university reaches net zero by 2030 through a unique mix of energy efficiency programmes, low carbon onsite energy production and the implementation of renewable generation at the Docklands and Stratford campuses. However, the partnership not only aims to make its urban sites net zero carbon by 2030, but to also enhance student and staff experiences through green learning opportunities, access to local green energy enterprises and a digital-first culture through the roll-out of intelligent technology.
