Energy Efficiency

Consumption of electricity is easily controlled by the users of that energy. Users can, for example, shut down computers, lights, and research equipment when not in use, resulting in immediate savings to the university as well as a reduction in air pollution.

Consumption of steam (for heating campus buildings) and chilled water (for cooling campus buildings) can be reduced by better control of temperatures inside buildings.

There are a number of low to no cost things that can be done by the university community. We will work with departments and building supervisors to assist you in making informed energy decisions.
