- Solar lighting along the footpaths between the buildings, using a photovoltaic system connected to the local grid, with 16 units of 30 W LED lights and 10 units of 60 W LED lights
- An energy efficiency upgrade through insulation of the building envelope and replacement of incandescent light bulbs with energy saving ones.
