54.5 gigawatt hours of energy and 229,230 cubic meters of water were consumed last year for research, teaching and administration to serve the roughly 13,000 students, PhD students and 5,000 staff in over 80 buildings. The energy consumption generated emissions totaling 2,961 tonnes of CO2-equivalents. The data published here for the years 2016-2018 serves as a basis for establishing a system for ongoing resource monitoring.
