Energy projects on campus

We have focused on optimising building operations so that energy is used more efficiently and have installed 10,000 solar panels at more than 38 locations across our campuses.

These approaches have been implemented through two large programs: The Clean Energy Finance Corporation (CEFC) funding program from 2016 to 2018 and the Smart Campus Energy Upgrades (SCEU) project from 2019 to 2022.

  • Check building energy usage

    You can find out how much electricity is consumed in your university building through our building electricity report database. The Utility Report database provides electricity consumption reports for buildings on all campuses. This assists departments and faculties to understand their electricity consumption and encourage the targeted reduction of energy use to reduce our university-wide carbon footprint.

    The database can produce flexible reports, including aggregating several buildings over a nominated time period. All utilities are covered by the database: electricity, gas, steam and water, but only the electricity usage can be queried at a building level.

    Access the reports by following the instructions below:

    • Access the Clariti site.
    • Log in using the following credentials:
