Race to Zero challenge is a world-wide activity for the universities and colleges to foster the climate goals. This paper analyses the potential of Riga Technical University (RTU) for this action. Different renewable energy sources (PV, wind generators) have been discussed to be installed around the RTU campus. The profiles of electric power consumption are analysed for one faculty and sport centre. The consumption profiles show the amount of power demanded during the working hours, weekends and at night. Energy yield assessment on the roofs is made for two buildings where the configuration of PV panel placement and orientation are analysed that in turn is reflected in the energy generation profile. SCADA system is considered as a monitoring and control tool to visualize power generation and control of the power flow within the system elements.
