The College was founded by Henry VIII in 1546 and is now the largest college in Cambridge or Oxford. The College has 180 Fellows, almost 700 undergraduates and 400 postgraduates. The college employs approximately 360 people. The college also has the benefit of a substantial endowment fund.
Under EU legislation any organisation that is not publically funded and employing more than 250 people was obliged to undergo an Energy Saving Opportunity Scheme (ESOS) review by 5th December 2015. This involved reviewing all areas of energy consumption, across all the assets owned by the organisation. The ESOS review only covered expenditure where, if savings could be identified, these savings would accrue to the organisation.

“It would be more cost effective to build a new college from scratch, on agricultural land owned by the college outside Cambridge, and turn the historic buildings into a Disney style tourist attraction in the centre of the City, but that would change the very nature of Cambridge. That is, however, impossible.”
