Campus Energy Assessment

Through a program partnership with AASHE and the Rocky Mountain InstituteCampus Sustainability Fellow Dr. Anne Stephenson has worked part-time this past year to develop a comprehensive energy assessment of campus buildings. This energy efficiency plan shows how Unity College can best direct resources for low-cost energy-saving projects. If implemented, it will help the college save money over the long-term and reduce campus emissions. Annie has undertaken a comprehensive evaluation working closely with faculty, staff, and students to develop this plan. Next steps for this work include integration of energy conservation measures into campus facilities upgrades and academic offerings, pilot of appropriate campus projects, and identification of funding sources for implementing various aspects of the plan.
