The goal of this work was to develop a sustainability study in five campuses of the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya (UPC) around Catalunya, i.e. Campus Nord and Campus Sud in Barcelona city, Campus Baix Llobregat, Campus Manresa and Campus Vilanova i la Geltrú. The amount of consumed energy was calculated to consider reducing, if possible, the contracted power capacity. Additionally, it was proposed to self-consume part of the produced energy using photovoltaic (PV) systems of 25, 50 and 100 kWp and c-Si, Poly or CdTe Technology in order to reduce the environmental impact. Finally, an economic analysis of all the proposed facilities was conducted to examine their financial feasibility.
