1 Changing HE Futures - Good or Bad for Sustainability?

2 HE FUTURES We need to design a system that's built to last – and, given that we will need some radical thinking to succeed in the world we are entering, I suggest we think hard before deeming any proposition "off limits”

3 HE FUTURES Students - numbers, demands

4 HE FUTURES Changing students - numbers, demands Competition Tight finances Efficiency & effectiveness Porosity - ‘lifelong learning’ - ‘blog science’ Thanks to Michael Nielson

5 HE FUTURES Changing students - numbers, demands Competition Tight finances Efficiency & effectiveness Porosity - ‘lifelong learning’ - ‘blog science’ New models - digitally driven

6 NEW MODELS US For Profit Degree Bodies - 7% of all college students - 9% pa growth - compared to 1.5% pa for traditional 455,600 students 200 locations Average tuition fees - $14,174 - compared to $7,020 at a state university

7 We recognize that separating humanity from nature, from the whole of life, leads to humankind's own destruction and to the death of nations. Only through a re-integration of humanity into the whole of nature can our people be made stronger SUSTAINABILITY PAST

9 SUSTAINABILITY FUTURES New/rethought problems & solutions More intellectually diverse - less consensus More Asian

10 Broader world view/values - serving society (aka customer) - frugality, humility, smoothness/harmony Lean manufacturing - customer satisfaction - quality - systemic elimination of mura ("unevenness") - energy efficiency/waste reduction a by product of a holistic, value driven approach

11 A G(REEN)-LEAN PHILOSOPHY Understanding the system Empowering people Right sizing Smooth load following Effective control and feedback Flexibility Design integration

12 ENERGY IMPROVEMENT – CARBON TRUST VIEW Performance criterion Thermal mass Daylighting Building orientation Facade performance Area type grouping Solar HWS Ground source heat pump Controls CHP/Biomass Rainwater harvesting CHP/Fuel cell Biomass Wind Photovoltaics Integrated Design Bolt On Cost Wow Factor

13 HE IMPLICATIONS Sustainability/strategy alignment Lean, high performance models - quality without quantity Space utilisation Rethinking science/technology education A more strategic view of infrastructure - smart buildings, ‘cyber college’, cloud-based services - outsourcing enabling integration Ensuring a ‘green’ IT infrastructure Professional/technical staff as a learning resource

14 SPACE AND CARBON Low case - no space; under 8 miles commute - commuting 70 kilos CO 2 gross, 56 net Moderate case - up to 5 m 2 space, 8 miles + commute distance - space 361 kilos CO 2 gross, 253 net - commuting 504 kilos CO 2 net, 403 gross High case - 5 m2 + space, 8 miles + commute distance - space 723 kilos CO 2 kilos net, 506 gross - commuting 504 kilos CO 2 net, 403 gross

15 SCIENCE/TECHNOLOGY EDUCATION High utilisation Ultra efficient design Lean operations Simulation Robotics

16 Server Load/ Computing Operations Cooling Equipment Power Conversion & Distribution Alternative Energy Supply High voltage distribution Use of DC power Highly efficient UPS systems Efficient redundancy strategies Power efficiency/management Load management Consolidation/Virtualisation Better air management Free/efficient cooling Efficient liquid cooling Flexibility and control On-site renewables Waste heat for cooling Fuel cells Thermal storage ICT Energy Opportunities - Adapted from EPA Original

17 GREEN IT AGENDAS 2010 Financial responsibility SMART ICT can cut global 2020 CO 2 emissions by 12% net Smart metering Intelligent buildings New ways of working

18 INCREASED/PROTECTED REVENUES Partnership for Renewables Carbon Reduction Commitment Residence charges?

19 THE UNTAPPED LEARNING RESOURCE Campus and its operations Professional/technical staff Student projects

20 OUR NEW PROFESSOR

21 Changing HE Futures - Good or Bad for Sustainability? Environmental sustainability – provisionally yes Social sustainability – depends on definitions

22 SUSTAINABLE SYNERGIES Attractive, healthy working conditions enhance performance - daylighting - natural materials - natural ventilation Lifetime costs - capital £1 - operating £20 - salaries £
