2015/16 results

The winning hall for 2015/15 was Great Dover Street who were rewarded with a big giveaway of Ben & Jerry’s! At Champion Hill, Maple floor 2 were the best for energy-saving in both the first and second term and they were also rewarded with loads of Ben & Jerry’s!

Across all the four KCL halls electricity usage reduced by an average of 4.3% thanks to the energy-saving actions of students and infrastructural changes made by the university. This helped to keep over 76 tonnes of CO2 out of the atmosphere – really important in the fight against climate change. You can check out the final leaderboard and stats here.
