The University of Sheffield has recently made the switch to our zero carbon, 100% renewable electricity!

The signed contracts will ensure the entire University’s estate will be supplied with our zero carbon, 100% renewable electricity, sourced solely from Wind, Hydro and Solar power. This covers all the University’s buildings, including their central campus, accommodation, and all other facilities.


With electricity being the largest component of the University’s on-campus carbon emissions, their switch to renewables will have a dramatic impact on their carbon footprint and shows the University’s commitment to sustainable development.


Our Managing Director, Ian Brothwell, said: “We are looking forward to developing a long-term partnership with The University of Sheffield to support them on their low carbon, sustainability journey. The switch highlights their confidence in Bryt Energy and sets a positive example to the rest of the higher education sector.”


Professor Koen Lamberts, Vice-Chancellor of the University of Sheffield, said: “We are absolutely committed to addressing climate change via our research, our education and our institutional actions.
“Switching to a 100% renewable electricity contract is an important step in our sustainability work and follows our work to completely divest from fossil fuels and incorporate sustainable development into our education.


“We look forward to working closely with our students and staff on the next phase of our sustainable development.”
