To optimise the consumption of energy of the installations of the UPO


  • ––The cumulative savings from 2011 to 2014 were 26.47%, compared to the 2011 Reference Baseline.
  • ––It is worth mentioning that phases II and III of the Library were started in 2012, which led to high monthly consumption figures. The consumption of this building was further reduced years later by implementing more exhaustive controls.
  • ––This has resulted in savings of approximately 200,000 euros per year.

Initial situation

Energy demand management is starting to become a vital element of the energy policies of organisations and, in particular, of Spanish universities. The reduction of energy demand is a very economical way of achieving the objectives of reducing the costs of energy supply, minimising the environmental impacts and increasing energy safety.

Taking these premises into account, since the foundation of the Pablo de Olavide University (UPO) in Seville in 1997, the Infrastructures, Maintenance and Energy Efficiency area (IMEE) and Computing and Communications Centre (CIC), led by the administration of the UPO, have been increasingly concerned about establishing quality Energy Efficiency management mechanisms for the installations and buildings of the campus, as well as raising awareness on "shortages in the availability of energy and its environmental impact", with the participation of the whole university community in achieving these objectives.

In turn, the infrastructures of the University have grown from 1997-2015 (buildings and installations used for teaching, research and administrative management), which require the efficient management of the matters described in these good practices (management of light, drinking and irrigation water and air conditioning systems, attendance control systems, fire alarms, fire extinguishing systems, surveillance systems, etc.).
