"The campaign was started in the wake of increasing energy prices and before its launch it was estimated in another five years the university could expect its energy bill to almost double. Energy consumption had also been increasing at a rate of 3%-6% for as long as records showed, Mr Mason said"

"The best-performing buildings were the ones with staff acting as key contacts for the savings campaign. These included the Owheo Building, executive residence, Smithell's Gym, commerce building, zoology buildings, property services and the Gregory Building, which all reduced energy use by 4% to 12%"
