The University of Salford is a British public research university located in Salford, Greater Manchester, with approximately 20,000 registered students. The main campus is about 1.5 miles (2.4 km) west of Manchester city centre, and is situated in 60 acres (240,000 m2) of parkland on the banks of the River Irwell.


The University of Salford’s Carbon Management Plan has set a target of a 43% reduction on CO2 emissions by September 2020 from its 2005/06 baseline, with an interim target of a 30% reduction by September 2015.


A reduction in energy consumption levels will see a reduction in the £1.9 million energy bills. It is estimated that lighting accounts for around 25% of electricity use and 30% of the university’s Carbon Footprint.

“By displaying the Green Screens across the campus we have successfully driven awareness of our energy usage amongst the student body and faculty staff and have experienced a 5% energy reduction.” Matteo Littera, Energy Manager, University of Salford
