Decreasing Campus Energy Use With Flexible Classrooms and e-Learning

The Australian National University is preparing an Energy Master Plan. The aim is “… to create an Australian world class energy efficient, low-carbon, least-cost campus …”. One target in the existing ANU Environmental Management Plan 2017-2021 is to “Reduce energy use per person by 20 per cent by 2021”. New forms of education can help, by using the buildings more efficiently and moving some education online. I suggest these techniques can be used to reduce energy use per person. In particular, teaching staff can be trained to teach in flexible and online mods. Also, a system can be used for students to book a seat.

Evidence emerging that shows using hybrid online and on-campus course design approaches can provide cost-savings, reduce energy use, and more.
