Sustainability

TU Delft is working to make the campus more sustainable. We aim to save on energy using sustainable maintenance and improvements to its energy and heat management. When it comes to new buildings or renovation projects we suggest innovative solutions and involve the scientific staff early on. The yet to be built education building Pulse is a good example of this. It will be the first energy neutral building on campus and was developed in close cooperation with the Architecture faculty. We also sustainably generate 1.2 megawatts of electricity using solar panels installed on our roofs.

Objectives

  • 2020: 40% primary energy saving (in comparison to 2005)
  • 2020: 25% sustainable energy generation
  • 2020: 50% reduction in COemissions (in comparison to 2005)
  • 2040: no more gas-fired heating on campus (from 2035 onwards)
  • 2040: fully energy neutral campus as far as energy provision is concerned
