Maximize Energy Efficiency in Buildings

Buildings on a research campus, especially laboratory buildings, often represent the most cost-effective opportunities for reducing energy use and carbon emissions.

To understand available options for climate action plans, campuses can evaluate the following:

Once all savings have been wrung from energy efficiency in buildings, further greenhouse gas reductions can be attained through distributed energy resource installations. These technologies include distributed solar systems on rooftops or on top of parking structures.
