The SAVES project was born from a realization that too many university students didn’t have the knowledge or ability to efficiently use energy and reduce their carbon footprint as a result. SAVES was created to educate students throughout Europe about their energy consumption and support them in realizing their sustainable goals both at university dormitories and private-rented accommodation. SAVES2 raises student awareness about energy efficiency and smart metering while also installing positive sustainability habits to last a lifetime.

UNICA and four UNICA member universities* are proud to be participating in such a successful project, which combines 11 partners from 8 countries and is coordinated by NUS UK, in the hopes of reducing fuel poverty in Europe.

SAVES 2 aspires to build and strengthen international alliances and disseminate sustainable practices throughout Europe. We are committed to making students the cornerstone of a sustainable education sector, with the hope of developing a new generation of energy-responsible citizens. Our campaign will continue until 2020, aiming to reach over 200,000 students while saving 30 GWhs of energy.
