Excel Dryer Gives University of Reading Green Light to Save Energy
The University of Reading has long been at the forefront of sustainability research and initiatives to mitigate its own environmental impact and reduce its carbon footprint. The London-based research university has made a number of changes to its existing campus infrastructure to ensure its facilities are environmentally ready for the future. In 2011, Dan Fernbank was brought in as the Energy Manager at the University of Reading. He had previously spent four-and-a-half years working for the Carbon Trust in a variety of roles and establishing a national carbon reduction program for schools. Fernbank has led several highly successful sustainability initiatives at the university, the most recent of which was the installation of the high-speed, energy-efficient XLERATOReco ® Hand Dryers throughout the campus, which the university chose over the UK blade-style model after careful consideration.

Green Benefits of Excel Dryer Hand Dryers (Graphic: Business Wire)
In order to ensure that the university was installing the most sustainable hand drying solution available, Fernbank reviewed independently verified energy performance data of various high-speed hand dryers. Using the Salix Finance hand dryer calculation tool and the Carbon Trust’s Energy Technology List, Fernbank determined that the XLERATOReco Hand Dryer was the best option for the university.
According to the Salix calculator, XLERATOReco Hand Dryers offer the following benefits vs. the UK blade-style model to replace conventional hand dryers:
Compared to the UK blade-style hand dryer, the XLERATOReco
- Dries hands in 12 seconds* using only 500 watts versus 1,600 watts (At 230 Volt, 50 Hz)
- Uses 55 percent less energy per use
- Saves the university $2,155.20 annually
- Is manufactured in the Unites States versus Malaysia
Compared to conventional hand dryers, the XLERATOReco
- Represents an annual energy savings of 88 percent
- Saves the university $13,437.37 annually
“We conduct research about climate science and sustainable construction, so we need to lead by example. Manufacturers like Excel Dryer – who continue to innovate sustainable products like the high-speed, energy-efficient XLERATOReco Hand Dryer – allow us to do that,” said Fernbank. “This independent research provided assurance; someone has looked at each of these machines and come up with how much energy they would use. The research supported the XLERATOReco Hand Dryer for the long-term. This was a good opportunity to go beyond what had been done in the past and make some additional savings.”
Since 2011, Fernbank has also led the university’s carbon reduction program; achieving a 23 percent cut in their entire estates’ carbon emissions in just four years. This has saved $11.1 million cumulatively for the university. In 2014, Fernbank gained a first class honors Bachelor of Science in Environmental Studies (BSc), the same year the university won the edit.net Sustainability Leaders Award for energy efficiency. Previously, Fernbank spent four-and-a-half years working for the Carbon Trust in a variety of roles and establishing a highly successful national carbon reduction program for schools.
