Term 3 Update
The CUSTOMER project has entered the final term, and students are busy with exams.
We have all the meters in place, the dashboard working and data is being analysed.
Students are trying to recruit others to the Facebook site. It’s been a challenge due to the exam period, but all the Energy Ambassadors have contributed.
Version 2 of the game has been launched that has slightly less sensitive mouse controls, and performance improvements by reducing the number of polygons. The main task for this work package is to obtain feedback on version 2.
Key activities for the next couple of weeks are further recruitment to Facebook Green@cu and as many as possible playing the game. A key meeting has been with the Hall Reps, who from next academic year are going to have three Environmental posts with bursaries, as currently the work they carry out is on good will. This should help with the constant challenge of being high profile to students when there is so much that competes for their attention.
Printers have been installed in three halls and students recruited as Printer Assistants to stock printers with consumables. The introduction of printers into halls has been well received, though going forward much will depend upon whether they do save energy and whether there will be additional funding to support the provision of staff as Printer Assistants.
