Analyze Technology Options
An effective climate action plan follows a portfolio approach and addresses each energy sector on campus. This section outlines how various technology options would fit into a campus climate action plan and provides examples of how others have used these technologies. Links to definitions, technology basics, and references are also provided.
Use the Climate Action Planning Tool to identify which options will lead to the most significant reductions in consumption of fossil fuels and in turn meet campus greenhouse gas reduction goals.
Optimize the energy supply based on carbon fuels at the central power plant, and then add renewable energy systems wherever practicable.
At the Central Plant
Use Renewable Energy
After completing these steps, next prepare a climate action plan and set priorities.
