4.2 For new buildings with a net energy consumption of zero

The Independent Student wants:
– All new university buildings to be CO2-neutral;
– New university building to be built in a environmental friendly way;

The University of Groningen is a growing university. Each year, more and more students start studying in Groningen. And more students require more room. The Independent Student believes that the university has the responsibility to assure that new facilities have a net energy consumption of zero.

The age of fossil fuels is over. The Independent Student wants the university to lead the way in using and developing innovative technologies.

Constructing new buildings has a significant impact on the national parks nearby Groningen, especially those who are sensitive to deposition of nitrogen. The university should embrace technologies to reduce the impact of construction sites on the nearby national parks.
