Transformational energy project showcased at Harper Adams University

30 January 2020
Harper Adams University welcomed 50 delegates from across the UK, and even as far afield as France, to its Sustainable Transformation Energy Project (STEP) Campus Infrastructure Day.

The event was an opportunity for delegates to witness the award-winning STEP project, and understand how the university has implemented a range of technologies to transform the way vital utilities – gas, electricity and water – and produced on and extracted from the campus.

Host Henry Gun Why, project leader at Harper Adams, said: “Today is a milestone day for Harper Adams to demonstrate its sustainability credentials to the sector.

He explained that as the project came to fruition, university’s estates team realised they had a lot to show and tell to the sector. “There were a lot of lessons learned, so Harper Adams, being a very honest, high-integrity institution, wishes to share that with the sector.

“It is an important day for knowledge exchange between engineers, between institutions and also between collaborating parties; it is a shared understanding of how far we have come in a very short space of time.”
