Responsibility and sustainability require cooperation

Dear students and colleagues,

a few days ago, we entered the second half of the fall semester. The justified joy and enthusiasm for the excellent renewal of faculty life are unfortunately spoiled for many of us by concerns about the energy crisis, which is becoming an increasingly frequent topic with the arrival of cold foggy mornings and early sunsets.

When we planned the renovation of the primary faculty campus years ago, we had no idea how much we would appreciate some of its new components in the future. Few people know that the efficient use of daylight and sunlight in selected buildings is monitored by special sensors that automatically control the shading technology of the windows; other sensors regulate the lighting of specific corridors about the amount of daylight. But that's not all. The heating of the buildings is controlled by intelligent systems that, among other things, take into account classroom schedules and similarly regulate the air exchange in the classrooms.

However, the events of this turbulent year have made us think more intensively than ever about the sustainability of faculty operations. We are considering various options, but all of them aim to keep the faculty running, despite extreme energy prices. But that requires the efforts of all of us. An effort that will result in a faculty that does not waste.

I would therefore like to ask you all to be as responsible and thoughtful as possible in the interests of all of us. Among other things, the Energy Ten or the detailed overview of activities and measures explicitly aimed at a sustainable faculty environment, will help you to do this. If you have an idea for making operations more efficient, please do not hesitate to contact me.

I am confident that we can also tackle this crisis together.
