These new solar panels will prevent the emission of 81 t of CO₂ per year.
UniLaSalle is pursuing its energy efficiency policy by installing 554 solar panels on the roof terrace of the main building on its campus in Beauvais. According to estimates, these panels, which occupy an area of 919.64 m² and have a maximum power of 182 kW-peak, will produce 173,747 kW/h annually, entirely for self-consumption. This figure will represent 4.7% of the overall energy consumption of the Beauvais campus.
314 t of CO₂ saved since 2018 thanks to UniLaSalle's solar panels
The commissioning of these new solar panels will prevent the emission of 81 tons of CO₂ each year.
UniLaSalle's Beauvais campus had already installed 625 m² of photovoltaic panels on the roofs of the AgriLab building in 2018. This installation, dedicated to the resale of electricity on the grid, has already contributed to reducing CO₂ emissions by 314 tons.
Solar panels also clad the south gables of the Carrières student residence, for the production of domestic hot water.
A proactive policy of continuous improvement in the energy performance of our campuses
The installation of photovoltaic panels is part of a more global policy to improve the environmental performance of the Beauvais campus.
The historic farm, which today houses academic spaces (classrooms, documentation center) and events, has 82% of its energy needs covered by deep geothermal energy, i.e. 3,200 m² of buildings heated by this energy source.
The south and west wings of the main UniLaSalle building have undergone thermal renovation.
UniLaSalle would like to thank the Hauts-de-France Region, the Communauté d'Agglomération du Beauvaisis and the Hauts-de-France Regional Directorate of ADEME for their financial support for the various projects carried out by UniLaSalle to improve the energy efficiency of its facilities.
