Wood energy works for University of Otago
The University of Otago's Property Services division oversees the maintenance of campus buildings and grounds as well as new building construction. As the unit that keeps the University's campuses functioning year round, Property Services' energy use can be intensive. So when they were considering a heating upgrade, one of the key drivers was the ongoing cost of power. Renewable energy was the preferred option. But like any other organisation with limited budget, the final solution needed to make good business sense.
