Share Your Campus Efficiency Story in Nashville

June 1, 2015

Does your campus have an efficiency success story to tell? For the second year, NACUBO is encouraging member institutions to showcase their energy savings, retrofits, waste, water, or other unique processes that have advanced environmental and financial sustainability at this year's annual meeting in Nashville.

Last year in Seattle, more than 30 posters highlighted efforts related to geothermal energy, developing resources for saving water, renewable energy options, improving the campus carbon footprint, academic programs, and behavior modifications to engage students and faculty in saving energy.

Posters provide invaluable visuals for colleges and universities to inform students, staff and the community about their unique efforts. NACUBO used these success stories to help explain higher education's important role as a critical player on the global energy efficiency stage, highlighting them during the 17th Annual Congressional Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency EXPO and Policy Forum held in the Cannon House Office Building. The event educated legislative staff and the general public on the connection between higher education and overall sustainability.

Colleges and universities take up more than 5 billion square feet and consume $6-7 billion in utilities and energy costs each year; yet higher education is often overlooked as a sector that advances efficiency.
