Energy and Climate
University Operations targets our buildings as opportunities to use energy more efficiently. We will commit to reducing emissions wherever possible, generating our own renewable energy when financially feasible, zero emissions growth, and lastly, offsetting the remaining greenhouse gas emissions needed to achieve climate neutrality. Retrofits to existing buildings improve their mechanical efficiencies, while new buildings are designed to be as energy efficient as possible. Besides ongoing efficiency retrofits and projects to reduce energy demand, Green Power purchases have helped us reduce our net emissions.
Over the past seven years the university has maintained an aggressive program of lighting and Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning (HVAC) upgrades to reduce energy consumption.
Energy use is a major contributor to the University's greenhouse gas emissions. Learn more about our emissions and our Climate Neutrality Action Plan.
The annual, month-long competition encourages campus residents to identify areas to improve energy efficiency and resource conservation in their residence halls and to share those ideas with our Facilities and Utilities departments.
