2 Dr Zoe Robinson, Keele University, Greening Business: An online teaching resource. Activity 1: Energy savings Your organisation has decreased its grid electricity use from 13,043,000 kWh in 2003 to 12,987,000 kWh in 2008 over 5 years. 1)At an average cost of £0.10 p/kWh what are the financial savings in 2008 compared to 2003? 2)1 kWh grid electricity = kg CO 2 What are the CO 2 savings in 2008 compared to 2003?

3 Dr Zoe Robinson, Keele University, Greening Business: An online teaching resource.

5 Dr Zoe Robinson, Keele University, Greening Business: An online teaching resource. Activity 4: Energy audit Carry out a simple energy audit (or baseline environmental review) of one of the buildings that you regularly use on the campus List five strategies that can be put in place to improve the energy criteria in the building What are the approximate costs and payback periods of these measures?

6 Dr Zoe Robinson, Keele University, Greening Business: An online teaching resource. Activity 5: Rainwater harvesting case studies Look at the case studies at: _studs/cs_studs_lst1.html _studs/cs_studs_lst1.html Make a table summarising the use, annual rainfall, roof area, rainwater collection yield, capital cost Calculate the annual savings (based on water rates of: £1.4 per m 3 ) How long will the financial payback time of the system be?
