Lancaster University is set to significantly reduce its carbon footprint following a £5m funding award from the Higher Education Funding Council for England (HEFCE).
The University is one of only three out of the 37 applicants to win the funding from HEFCE's £10m Transformational Fund. The fund has been made available specifically for Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) across England to radically transform their approaches to energy consumption and reducing emissions. The proposed project is to develop two 2.3MW wind turbines on the University's Hazelrigg site to the east of the M6 motorway.
