Cost of Net Zero - new report and calculator tool

With the publication of the new 'Cost of Net Zero' report and accompanying cost calculator tool, university estates directors not only have a means to calculate the overall likely cost of bringing the estate to net zero carbon, but a checklist of the kinds of activity that will need to be prioritised. As society changes we must lead that change, for instance in our support for lower carbon cost transport, electrification and the decarbonisation of the electricity supply. For those who haven’t yet started down this path, this is a good place to start, including for those who don’t want the expense of external consultancy support. For those that already have a map of where they are going and how much it will costs them this will help them sense check along the way.

Estates Management Report 2022

The 2022 edition of the AUDE Higher Education Estates Management Report is now available. The data on which the report is based covers the period August 2020 to July 2021 – and as a reminder, this is the height of the pandemic. It is a time of immense upheaval, and this year we read that disruption in virtually every item of data and every graph in our report. It is reasonable to think that this annual EMR report will be the best at showing that sense of before/after, and therefore be useful as a marker for years to come.
