Congratulations to our Manchester partners Manchester Metropolitan University, Siemens UK and Manchester City Council for winning the Public Building Energy Project Energy Award of the Year 2018. The project partners demonstrated how technology can improve sustainable mobility, energy, ICT and business: Nearly 600 solar panels have been installed on the roof of the Brooks Building at Oxford Road Corridor to provide low carbon energy on campus.
Moreover, a Siemens Lithium Ion Battery has been installed to reduce demand on the energy network at peak times, all controlled by intelligent technology. It was this energy management and optimisation aspect of the project that won the Public Building Energy Project of the Year Award 2018, run by EMAP Publishing.
