UCD Green Library: Energy Efficiency

What we have done so far


In early 2019 new LED lights were installed in the foyer and Library Hub area of the James Joyce Library

In 2022 new LED lights were installed in the ceilings of the Veterinary Medicine Library Library

Switching to LED light can reduce electricity consumption for lighting by up to 50%

Additional LED lighting upgrades are planned

Our suppliers are doing their bit for the environment too

Doggett Group are a carbon neutral printing company using FSC paper from managed forests. They also contribute to a world wide fund for all paper that they take in: 

Copy Graphics manage their printing services in an environmentally sound manner, using recycled paper and ink cartridges


UCD wide initiatives

UCD has an ambitious goal to improve energy efficiency by 33% by 2020

Find out how you can help reach that goal on the Energy Management webpage from Estate Services

What we are planning to do

As funds allow, additional LED lighting will be mapped throughout our spaces.
